Ever since she was little, Amy was especially intrigued by horror books and movies. Raised in Northern 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. 

When Amy isn't reading or writing, she enjoys playing roller derby, cooking, crafting, and playing games across many platforms.

Her novel The Ravenous was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award in the Superior Achievement in a YA Novel category, and her novel Daughters unto Devils was a YALSA Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Readers 2017.
