What if you finally stop running away from the story you were always meant to tell?
From the award-winning Author of LEMONGRASS HOPE comes the highly anticipated follow up Novel, I KNOW HOW THIS ENDS.
In the spring of 2020, an ambitious journalist, Rory Garcia, gets detoured on her way to a protest at New York City Hall, and stumbles upon the commencement ceremony of a very special class, composed completely of 37 students born to women who were pregnant on 9/11. They are, in fact, the very first graduating high school class of true 9/11 survivors.
Valedictorian, Hope Campton, is scheduled to give the commencement speech for the class at Carnegie Hall, but delays and absences threaten to ruin the day. While Rory is waiting, a mysterious stranger tells her a time-bending tale about epic love, loss, and sacrifice, and suddenly the story Rory thinks she is covering only from the outside becomes so much more.
My name is Amy and I am a writer, a lawyer, and a mother of three.
Which tells you everything.
And nothing at all.
After spending thirteen years as a corporate litigator in New York City, I left to write and advocate for working women, and eventually women entrepreneurs, as VP, Community & Designer Relations for ShopFunder LLC.
My first novel, “Lemongrass Hope,” debuted in October 2014, as an Amazon best-seller (Romance/Fantasy and Romance/Time Travel) and now I’m a full-time writer, even though it looks like I’m eavesdropping on people at the local coffee shop. Just kidding, I am eavesdropping.
My sophomore novel, “Secrets of Worry Dolls,” released on December 1, 2016 and was named a Bronze Winner in the INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards (Multi-cultural Category) (YAY!) My third novel, “The Truth About Thea,” released on October 17, 2017, is a Francis Ford Coppola Books & Bottles inaugural pick, and a National Indie Excellence Award Winner (Legal Thriller). My newest novel, “Why We Lie” is out now and has been featured by Publisher’s Weekly, Booktrib and more.
I also have a non-fiction book published by the American Bar Association called “Lawyer Interrupted” – a how-to guide for leaving the practice of law – something about half of all lawyers want to do. Who knew?
I am the Past President of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association, and a proud member of the TALL POPPY WRITERS – a community whose tagline says it all: “Bright Authors, Smart Readers, Good Books.” Come hang out with Tall Poppy Writers and Readers in our amazing online book community called BLOOM.
I am a frequent speaker across the country, a 2018 Writer-In-Residence at Ms.-JD.org, and a creative writing workshop instructor in my home base of Reading, Pennsylvania. (pronounced RED-DING, but still, perfect, no?)
I am eternally grateful for my family, my friends, and the recent research confirming that large amounts of coffee are indeed good for you (& me!)
