In her novels, she brings to life characters who jump off the page with their true-to-life personalities and real world problems and concerns. Their lives center around family, friends, and faith. Her stories–though often fraught with peril–champion love, uphold community, and inspire hope. Amy’s writing has been hailed “a verbal masterpiece of art” (author Alexa Jacobs) and “Everything you want in a book” (Amazon).
A former librarian and teacher, she now lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband, three daughters, and two dogs.

“I have just finished reading and am not sure whether to laugh or cry or sing with joy. This is an amazing set of love stories intertwining WWII with the present and providing glimpses of history and Italian culture and viniculture, love and loss and family. These characters will remain with me as friends and the places have become destinations I wish to visit. (Actually, I am well familiar with Little Italy and Da Mimmo holds a special place in my heart.) And, BONUS–there are recipes!” —Betababe, 2016

“This was a really great, involved story which I read in one sitting, even though it took me the entire night. Great writing and I will definitely be looking for more books by this author. [I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to read it.]” —Nola, 2016

“Whispering Vines” is a beautiful modern-day love story interwoven with a World War II back story that intertwines both love and mystery. When Alex’s surrogate grandmother dies, she leaves Alex her home and half of her family’s vineyard back in Italy. Eager for a new life, Alex picks up and moves to a country where she doesn’t know the language or anything about wine and is forced to face the other owner of the vineyard, an attractive young man who wants nothing to do with her. Reading this story was pure pleasure. The chemistry between the two main characters was electric. I also enjoyed reading the WWII journal entries and learned some things about Italy in the process.” —Patrice Fagnant-Macarthur, 2016
“Whispering Vines is well styled, fast paced, and engaging – the perfect recipe for an excellent book.”
– Judith Reveal, author of The Four Elements of Fiction
When death takes yet another person from Alex O’Donnell, she questions whether or not she will ever find happiness. Upon learning that she has inherited a vineyard in Italy, Alex leaves everything she knows behind to seek her future. She moves from her Baltimore apartment to a villa in Italy where she discovers a life of possibilities beyond her hopes and dreams. Arriving at the villa, Alex is taken aback by the animosity and scorn of the vineyard’s co-owner, Nicolas Giordano. Resentful of Alex’s sudden appearance, Nicolas struggles to maintain his control over his business and his feelings for his new partner. The discovery of a journal from World War II becomes the tie that binds Alex and Nicolas as they work to secure their future while putting together the pieces of a puzzle from the past. Unlock the hidden secrets among the Whispering Vines. “Schisler’s writing is a verbal masterpiece of art. She weaves together the lives of two women, generations apart, in a beautiful and heartbreaking tale of love and loss. This is a book to get lost in.” Author of Rising Ridge, Alex Jacobs.
