Amy lives in Denton, Texas with her husband and two sons. Thunderstorms and tacos are at the top of her “best of Denton” list. She began her career in education as an elementary school teacher, where she loved creating stories to make her lessons come alive for her students. After receiving a Master of Education from Texas A&M, she embarked on her writing journey. Her second children’s book, Meera’s Flowers, was published this year!
