Amy is an author whose passion for the paranormal drove her to create a series which would deliver the kind of thrills, suspense and intrigue she grew up devouring.
Amy studied Journalism and International Relations at University of Lincoln to feed her passion for writing before a chance placement saw her embark on a successful career in Public Relations.
Amy recounts how her drive to tell stories started when she was just five and endured well into her teens; when she began to move away from writing short stories to focus on her desire to write a novel. She explored many ideas that lead to the creation of the world of her heroine Scarlett and the story that later became her debut novel, Embers.
Ashes is the second in a trilogy about Scarlett Roth; a seemingly ordinary girl whose life takes a sudden twist into the sinister and macabre when she moves to Salem, Massachusetts – the centre of the infamous Witch Trials of the 1600’s.
