Hey, there! I’m Amy, and I’m a stay-at-home mom of two. This is what I do in my spare time–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 write. 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 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’m passionate about using my words and ideas to destroy the -isms that permeate our wider culture and seep into our writing. My non-fictional self can be found blogging at Unchained Faith, where I write mostly about church culture, parenting, and social issues.
