Author has written 7 stories for Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew.
Hello, my name is Amy, and I'm a music teacher! I'm from Oregon, and I like to think I'm a little bit hippy at heart. This whole writing thing is really new to me, but I have to say I feel probably the most creative I ever have in my entire life as I write these stories. I am incredibly grateful for reviews. It's amazing and surprising to me that I've written something that people actually enjoy :)

"If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason." - Jack Handy
"He's not my brother. He's just heavy." - Bucky in reference to Satchell in Get Fuzzy (I hope people know the original song, or else this isn't nearly as funny. Having to learn and sing it in several languages for various tours makes anything that pokes fun at it incredibly amusing to me.)
"I hate... so much about the things you choose to be." - Michael to Toby in the Office
"I have been Michael's number two guy for about five years, and we make a great team. We're like one of those classic famous teams. He's like Mozart and I'm like Mozart's friend. No, I'm like Butch Cassidy and Michael is like Mozart. You try and hurt Mozart, you're gonna get a bullet in your head, courtesy of Butch Cassidy." - Dwight from the Office
"People are always coming to me. "Michael, I have a secret. You're the only one I trust." No thanks, because keeping a secret can only lead to trouble. Like I was watching Cinemax last weekend. This movie, Portrait of a... Prostitute something. Secrets of a Call... More Secrets of a Call Girl. And the lead character, Shila, is framed for murder. She goes on the run and winds up working at a bordello in Malibu. I don't, I don't want to live like that. I like it here. I don't want to be Shila, I like being Michael Scott."
