Amy spent her childhood exploring the hills and hollers of western Kentucky. Perhaps these early adventures inspired her to begin writing stories at a young age to entertain her classmates. She grew up to earn an Associate Degree in Nursing from Madisonville Community College. But Amy soon hung up her stethoscope and scrubs to pursue her first true passion—writing. Since then, she has had nearly 60 magazine articles published for children and adults. She is also the author of two book series for children, Band Geeks and Libby Wimbley.
When Amy isn’t writing, she enjoys hanging out on the family farm with her husband, three children, and, of course, the fur babies—dogs, cats, goats, horses—who live with them. Amy also spends a lot of time hiking, fishing, and traveling across Kentucky, always on the look-out for the next great story.
