About Me

amyI am a writer, general creative sort, and all-around dork who loves books, animals, chocolate, and the beach.

My genre, if I’m pushed to pick only one, leans towards fantasy, though I’m also drawn to light sci-fi, or anything laced with a bit of magical realism.  I enjoy writing young adult fiction – I don’t think a story has to be overly complex to be worth reading – but I won’t necessarily limit myself to writing for teens and young adults. I like humor, light, color, and the triumph of good over evil (but only after a considerable amount of stress and aggravation to make things interesting, of course). Generally speaking, I strive to see the good in the world, the magical in the mundane, the light in the darkness, and the transcendent in the ordinary.

A Californian at heart, I currently reside in North Texas with one husband, two grown children, and a neurotic dog.
