Testimonial

"Perceptive, intuitive, kind, and humorous. As a person, a writer and a coach. Amy is a serious writer. I chose her, when my book was in infancy, because we shared many similar experiences as mothers, women and lovers of this wild and adventurous world, but mainly because she is a gifted writer. Like a new mother I wasn’t sure what to feed my book, when to burp it, when to just lay it down and give it a rest. I needed someone to tell me my baby was beautiful! Like a good midwife, Amy calmed all my irrational and imagined fears. She challenged me. She worked with me. And finally, she understood me. Writing a book, any book, takes a great deal of courage. Hemingway said “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Hah! Amy understands that kind of depth and what it takes it get there. It was a very positive experience working with her."
