Amy is a former middle school English teacher turned children’s publishing professional. Her experiences with her students motivated her to work in publishing so that she could help bring more great stories into the world. She has participated in almost every aspect of the publishing process, from sifting through an agent’s slush pile to uploading ebook files. She loves reading everything published for young readers, from board books to YA/crossover titles. Occasionally she will read an adult title, if she must.
When she’s not recommending books to anyone (and everyone), Amy loves going to see live music and spends several hours a week learning flamenco dance. She also has two cats that insist on sitting on her lap at every possible moment.
