About Me

Profile PicHey, there! I’m Amy, and I’m a stay-at-home mom of two.  This is what I do in my spare time–I write stuff.  Sometimes, I blog about life, faith, and inclusivity, or I share stories about my family (with their permission, of course).  Other times, I make up stories and share them with you.  Fortunately, my husband, to whom I’ve been married since 1997, has been happy to give me time and space to do both.

I consider myself an agnostic Christian, meaning that I hold to my faith but I profess certainty about nothing, and I don’t carry out my religion in any sort of traditional way.   I like to question the way we practice faith, especially with regard to church.  I admit that sometimes, I have some pretty serious doubts about the whole thing, but I keep pressing on because much of what I believe has enriched my life and made me a better, more loving person.

I’m a lifelong resident of New York State, and I wouldn’t have it any other way–despite the cold and snowy winters.  Besides, writing romantic, steamy, and sensual stories is a great way to keep warm, right?  I thought so.  I tend to set my stories in my home state, since it’s a place I know and love.  I have degrees in Nursing and Health Science, which I am obviously putting to good use here; just ask a few of my author friends about my fondness for ensuring my characters all have safe sex.

I’m passionate about using my words and ideas to destroy the -isms that permeate our wider culture and seep into our writing, whether that be fiction or non-fiction.  Feel free to stick around, hopefully adding your own voice via comments or even a guest post or two.  Welcome aboard!
