Hello, I'm Amy B. Scher.

I write and teach on the topics of healing, human-ing, and writing & creativity.

I’m the bestselling author of four books which have been translated into sixteen languages. My memoir, This Is How I Save My Life (Simon & Schuster 2018) was named one of GMA’s most anticipated books and endorsed by notable authors such as Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat Pray Love) and Vikas Swarup (Slumdog Millionaire). My award-winning How To Heal Yourself series has been praised by prominent physicians and used in medical organizations nationwide.

As an internationally recognized writer, my work has been featured in The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Good Morning America, CNN, CBS, The Los Angeles Review of Books, New York Daily News, The Rumpus, Thrillist, and more.  As an editor, I’ve worked with super cool brands—from Harley-Davidson to Thrillist—to help create quality content that pops. I also work with writers to help them find their voices and bring their stories to life.

I live with my beautiful wife and my bad cat in NYC, where we spend most of our time planning our next adventures and our next meals.


Translated into 16 languages, Amy’s award-winning and bestselling books have been endorsed by notable figures such as Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray Love); Vikas Swarup (Slumdog Millionaire); and Sanjiv Chopra, MD, MACP, Harvard Medical School (and author of Brotherhood with Deepak Chopra).
