Amy’s books have been translated into sixteen languages and endorsed by notable authors such as Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray Love); Vikas Swarup (Slumdog Millionaire); and Sanjiv Chopra, MD, Harvard Medical School and (Brotherhood with Deepak Chopra).
As an author, Amy teaches classes to help people break through blocks to become their happiest, healthiest, and most expressive selves. As a writing mentor, she works closely with authors to help them get their own stories into books — and those books into print.
She is proud to serve on the associate board for Literacy Partners in New York City, an organization that chose her memoir (This Is How I Save My Life / Simon & Schuster) as part of NYC’s Subway Reads initiative.
Amy lives in New York City with her beautiful wife and bad cat. Most importantly, she lives by her self-created motto: When life kicks your ass, kick-back.
