Amy is a full-time writer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has been selling freelance articles since 2000, inspired by her children, what she reads, and where she goes.

Besides writing about parenting, fitness, travel, and health, Amy is also an experienced technical writer who specializes in software documentation for end users and developers.

A Michigan native, Amy now balances her time between the Silicon Valley, where she's lived with her husband since 1998, and her family's log cabin in Northern California, where she retreats for quiet time among the pines.
