Meet Amy

Amy has been writing novels, children’s books, and devotionals for almost ten years. 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.

“This book was a joy to read! It is very well written and the author makes the book come to life. Even though this is book 3, I had no problem knowing what was going on. Now I want to read the other two books in the series. ” — Ann Ferri, Goodreads, 2019

5.0 out of 5.0 stars
The night I started reading Island of Hope, I intended to only read 1-2 chapters but quickly found myself lost in the characters and wanting to read more. It only took me 3 days to finish! I loved continuing to follow the characters’ lives from the first 2 books but also enjoyed the addition of new characters. Can’t wait for Amy’s next book! — Shauna Joesten, Goodreads, 2019

5.0 out of 5.0 stars
“A great read that really pulled me in from the first page to the last. It is a real page turner. The Author has done a great job at the world building as well as the Characters. There are twists and turns, I definitely recommend.” — Keli Barnard, Amazon, 2019

Hope is that thing that sees through walls, breaks through barriers, and propels dreams into reality.

Despite numerous struggles and tragedies, the Middleton and Kelly families live humble and faith-filled lives on the Atlantic Ocean resort town of Chincoteague Island, Virginia. The tight-knit families represent everything Megan and Nick hope to have – loving parents, welcoming homes, and stable lives. Megan escaped from a broken home in a neighborhood torn by the ravages of gangs and drugs. Nick longs to be part of the loving family he never had. All they’ve ever wanted is within their grasp if they but reach for it. To do so, they must have trust, faith, and hope in themselves, each other, and God; but opening their hearts to love will be harder than they imagined.

I keep hearing how bad the year has been, and I … Read more 2020 – A Year to Be Thankful
