Her magazine clients include: Redbook, Living with Teenagers, ParentLife, HomeLife, Collegiate, Spirituality and Health, Listen and dozens of others.
In addition to her own writing, Amy collaborates with subject matter experts on a variety of topics and ghostwrites memoirs. Her work shows remarkable versatility; she is at home writing about topics as varied as business, music, addiction, spirituality, and marriage and family topics. By building close working relationships with her coauthors, she turns real-life stories into page-turners that both compel and redeem. Amy also provides manuscript evaluation, copyediting, and book doctoring services to other writers. A sought-after speaker, she loves giving keynotes and facilitating retreats for groups around the country.
A life-long resident of Minnesota (ask her how she feels about that in January), Amy lives in a lakeside log home in the woods with her husband of nearly 30 years. When she’s not writing, Amy enjoys supporting her adult children in their life adventures, gourmet cooking, lounging by the fireside reading historical fiction and spoiling Tundra and Drifter, the family’s two Great Pyrenees dogs.
