Short bio:

Amy is an RN, artist, poet, and award-winning author of stories highly acclaimed by the likes of USA Today, Library Journal, and a five star review by Publisher’s Weekly. Her work focuses on trauma-informed hope and resilience inspired by faith and nature.  A Ph.D. in Nursing student at Purdue University, she lives in central Indiana with her husband.

Long bio:

A long-time believer in the power of story to change lives, Amy has been an artist and author as long as she can remember, spending weekends alongside her father in his workshop and painting her own projects. Her diverse writing career includes nearly three decades of freelance writing including medical journal publications and a popular op-ed newspaper column in addition to her books.

Praised by reviewers for the way they both poetically and accurately portray real life hardship and hope, Amy’s novels are inspired by social issues which break her heart and the redemption that can be found therein. The driving mission behind all her work is to bring hope to a hurting world.

Amy’s novels have been short-listed for various fiction awards, and How Sweet the Sound won the 2011 Women of Faith Writing Contest before it was acquired by publishers. Since then, she has published four more stand-alone novels, Then Sings My Soul, Lead Me Home, Before I Saw You, and Miracle at the Sideshow. Her first book of poetry, Fireflies, is a testimony to healing and motherhood and the power and beauty of nature. Her non-fiction work includes a devotional, 40 Days of Hope for Healthcare Heroes.

An RN pursuing her Ph.D., she’s a painter and mixed media artist whose work can be found in her Etsy store. She’s a wife, mom, grandma, and dog mama, who lives in central Indiana. Long walks in the woods are her favorite.
