Amy hails from humble beginnings. At a young age she was initially captivated—obsessed—with James Cameron’s Titanic and its inter-societal love story. It encouraged her to escape her one-stoplight hometown, Bayfield, Colorado. At twenty she circumnavigated the globe on a ship while earning her BFA in Creative Writing. By her senior year at Chapman University, she co-directed a documentary in Kathmandu, Nepal. To this end, Amy seeks meaningful connections with folks from diverse walks of life. She writes stories of unlikely bonds. Whether between kidnapper and captive or city dweller and small towner, she mingles with themes of forgiveness, entrapment, and kindness.
RAIN CHECK ON THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
RAIN CHECK ON THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE tells the story of two young women, from vastly different walks of life who must learn to value and accept who they are in order to find love within one another. Reagan is raised in a white, rural, homophobic small town whereas Chelsea grows up in an upper-class Black neighborhood of Los Angeles. When they end up at college together, they each grow to overcome their internalized burdens, and accept who they truly are before they fall in love with each other.
