Amy is a published poet, author, artist, and nature lover hailing from Middle Tennessee, where she lives with her husband and two children, and constantly dreams of someday visiting the landscapes of her Celtic and Germanic heritage. She has big dreams of using words and story in a way that can bring healing to people, specifically to women who have experienced trauma.
She can't watch a fantasy movie without wanting to write a critical paper on it, and she finds her soul connection in nature and loves to take her kids for nature walks whenever possible. Her current fandoms include BBC's Merlin and Sherlock, and long-time favorite Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Of course, nothing will ever take away her love for the Harry Potter series.
Amy is currently pursuing graduate study in theopoetics and the ministry of writing, and will be working toward ordination in the Church of the Nazarene. Her current works-in-progress include a mixed-media and found poetry series that grapples with purity culture by deconstructing Joshua Harris’s book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, and reuses words and phrases to reshape damaging messages into poems of hope and healing; a YA dystopian fiction series, and of course, her graduate theological studies, for which she has been reading and writing a lot.
