Amy Martin: About Me

Amy Martin wrote and illustrated her first book at the age of ten and gave it to her fourth grade teacher, who hopefully lost it in her house somewhere and didn’t share it with anyone else.

The first book she published as a grown-up, In Your Dreams,was a semi-finalist in the Young Adult category of the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Competition. The second book in the In Your Dreams series, As You Wake, was released in 2013, and the third book in the series, Before You Sleep, came out in 2014. The final book of the In Your Dreams series, Beyond Your Dreamswas released in September 2014.

In 2015, Amy released the first book (Quinn Invisible) of the Young Adult mystery suspense series The Quinn Callahan Chronicles. The second book of The Quinn Callahan Chronicles is due out in 2016.

A native of Missouri, Amy currently lives in Lexington, KY, with her husband and a ferocious attack tabby named Cleo. When not writing or reading, she’s usually watching sports, drinking coffee, or indulging her crippling Twitter habit (and, sometimes, doing all three at once). You can follow her on Twitter at @ThatAmyMartin, visit her Facebook fan page, or reach her by email at amy [at] theamymartin [dot] com.

    I just read your first book; it’s good. Kept me guessing and interested. I just purchased your second book, as I have to find out what happens with Frank. Good job; keep writing, and thanks for the thrills.

    I just read the final sentence of Before You Sleep and yes, I am cranky because I can’t finish the story right now! I really stopped by to tell you what a wonderful job you have done with this series. I have always been an avid reader, and I could see myself engrossed in this as much as a teenager as I am now (quite a few years later). Great job on making this appealing to a wide audience! Now could you please finish Book 4? :o)

    Amy, your books are so good you hooked a sixty-four year old army veteran with them! That’s pretty damn good as I read about twenty books a week and could (and have) fallen a sleep in the first third of many of them. You have the correct mix in your teens virsus adult (parental type) and that’s hard to get right for most authors. Thanks for giving me the pleasure of a good read. Your latest fan, SFC Sandy from the cornfield of Nebraska.
    P.S. Really got the “grandparent ” thing down too!! 😉

      Sandy,

      Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for your comments! My grandparents were very important people to me, and Zip’s grandparents were very much modeled after mine (personality-wise…not so much how they look). My grandfather was also a veteran–thank you for your service!
