I also like action and adventure woven in with steamy romance and, with it, may come a myriad of fight scenes. Almost three years ago, I… Read More
Amy embarked on her writing journey shortly after she completed an MBA with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her first manuscripts were suspense novels and were never published. She calls them baptism by fire---lessons in learning to write fiction. These lessons, combined with several writing conferences and classes, led her to write her first published book, Boy Man Chief, which won the League of Utah Writers award for Best Manuscript, and the Spark Book Award.
A lot has happened since, with some of the highlights being Rise of a Legend winning the national RONE award for Best Time Travel; hitting the Amazon Top 100 Bestseller list; and a host of other accolades.
Amy enjoys the freedom of authorship and the opportunity to work creatively every day. She has lived in Australia, Bermuda and has spent extensive time in Scotland. Whenever possible, she visits the places she writes about to add vibrant realism to her stories.
She loves writing Scottish historical romance, and now she's adding romantic suspense to the mix. Come along for the ride!

–Lyn Cote This is a question I get fairly often from people I don’t know very well. I say, “Yes, that’s my job.” Then people ask, “How many books have you written?” And they act surprised when I reply, “Nearly 50.” I mean I’ve been writing for many years–at least two books a year–they accumulate–like… Read More
