Ever since she was little, Amy was especially intrigued by horror books and movies. Raised in a small mountain town in Arizona, she sustained herself on a steady diet of Goosebumps, Fear Street, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books before discovering Stephen King in her mother’s bookshelf.
Amy lives with her husband, their two precious squidlings, and an old gentlemen cat by the name of Frodo. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys cooking, crafting, and playing games across many platforms.
