About Amy

Amy released her debut novel Rise (a modern mythological urban fantasy set in Japan) on April 30, 2021. Currently she's working on the sequel, and she finds there are way too many ideas to put each on paper.

She founded the Anvilite Streamers Corps and streams several times a week on Twitch. Her schedule can be found here. She started the vssCollab Twitter based flash fiction challenge and corresponding 'In Threads' zine. Additionally, she writes tutorials and tips for WA customization at Hacks and Help and contributes to the World Anvil Blog.

Amy was also an organizer for the first WritersCONduit, a grassroots online writers conference. In 2021 she wrangled the calendar, helped with the website, and presented as a panelist and streamed in several panels ranging from beta editors and critique partners to mythology and folklore.

She is a stay-at-home mom and has had many fun adventures including being a programmer on the Landsat 7 team, coaching for First Lego League, and developing lessons for and teaching Lego robotics and programming to kids.

Her interests include Japan, foxes, music (everything from movie scores, to EDM, to folk metal), teaching nalbinding (an ancient yarn craft – think Viking age and older), and both tea and coffee.
