An avid reader since she first recognized the letters “C-A-T,” Amy J. Norris dreamed of writ-ing her own books which not only provided opportunities for readers to enjoy romance but also tug at their heartstrings through the tragedies we all face. A resident of Huntsville, Al-abama, Amy works for one of the hundred government contractors in the area. Amy also spends her Monday nights singing with a not-so-local chapter of the Sweet Adelines Inter-national organization, the TuneTown Show Chorus, out of Nashville, Tennessee. When she’s not working or singing or reading or writing, Amy can be found refining her talents as the best sports fan in the world. She loves rooting for the Crimson Tide of Alabama and the St. Louis Cardinals and has been known to be enthralled with almost any sport, even the crazy Canadian sport of curling. Her primary goal is to get to Heaven to spend an eternity with our Lord and be reunited with family and friends who have gone on before, especially her Dad and Pepaw who instilled in her a love of writing in the first place.

I have been putting pen to paper, figuratively speaking, for most of my life but only in the last few years have I really pursued writing in a more serious manner, wanting to get my work published so others can read and hopefully appreciate it. I like to write in various genres, though science fiction, fantasy and historical are my favorites. I like to explore the characters and what they see in each other, show how the various
relationships develop. Discover if what the characters go through pulls them apart or makes them realize they will be stronger together. I try to set my heroes problems to solve, dilemmas to live and grow through, pain to survive and a future to deserve.
