Amy is a published poet/theopoet, 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 or sci-fi show without wanting to write a critical paper on it, and she finds her soul connection in nature and loves to stand barefoot in the grass under the light of the full moon. Her current fandom is Doctor Who, especially the Tenth Doctor (hi there, David Tennant).

Amy is currently pursuing an MA in theopoetics and writing, and is 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, rewriting damaging messages into poems of hope and healing; a YA dystopian fiction series, and of course, her graduate theological studies.
