Amy earned degrees in English from Seattle Pacific University, Western Washington University, and the University of Tennessee. After teaching college composition and literature for several years at a Christian university, she worked as an editor for a research center in Washington, DC. Amy has published academic articles and is currently working on her first book — a memoir about not meeting her husband until age 35 and revising the conception of God she had grown up with.
Amy lives with her husband and eight-year-old daughter in the suburbs of Chattanooga, Tennessee. She leads church groups and field trips, organizes play dates and closets, and makes as much time for reading and writing as this season of motherhood allows. Amy is passionate about encouraging others to actively engage with God to shape God's ongoing creativity in their lives.
