About Amy

I’m Amy Sue Nathan, and my third novel, LEFT TO CHANCE, will be published by St. Martin’s Griffin on November 21, 2017. My debut novel, THE GLASS WIVES, was published by St. Martin’s Griffin on May 14, 2013 and THE GOOD NEIGHBOR was published on October 15, 2015. I’m lucky to be represented by Danielle Egan-Miller of Browne & Miller Literary Associates.

I’ve been blogging since 2006, and launched the Women’s Fiction Writers blog in March 2011. I teach workshops for Writers Digest University and freelance as a fiction editor and writing coach. I’m also a book coach with Author Accelerator and trained in the Story Genius method. My stories and essays have appeared in print and online in over two dozen publications such as The Chicago Tribune, Chicago Parent, Writer’s Digest, Huffington Post, and online in New York Times and Washington Post blogs.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia and am a graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor’s in Journalism (a degree I actually use). I am back in my homeland of Philadelphia after twenty-six years, and am the proud mom of  two grown children (my favorite oxymoron). In addition to being a writer, editor, and blogger, I’m a dog-lover, vegetarian, not-so-secret crafter, and lover of all things wine and chocolate.

I’m livin’ the life. Just don’t ask which one.

Amy xo
