About Amy

Yep, I’m a writer.

I have spent my life as “Amy” to friends and family, various nicknames my big sister concocted throughout our childhood (yes, I answer to Gamer and Amos), “Mom” to my children, Mrs. Isaman to my students, and any number of endearments to my husband, but now, I’m choosing.

At this mid-life point in life, I’m making changes, so here it is . . . I am, Amy Isaman, Writer and Designer.

I used to spend my days in high school teaching freshman English which can be either highly rewarding and entertaining, or horribly grueling and depressing depending on the day – think Shakespeare + fifteen year-olds. I also taught juniors and seniors, Creative Writing and AP Psychology – super fun classes.

Now, I spend my days writing my stories and designing websites for the most amazing clients. I life my life enmeshed in creativity. And I LOVE it.

It took a bit to get back to writing which I abandoned after a particularly horrible creative writing class in college, but I did get there. So far, I have completed one historical fiction novel, The Overlander’s Daughter, a young adult mystery, #Killing It, and a contemporary women’s adventure called The Tarot Cipher, though at this point, none are published. That WILL be changing soon.
