Welcome to my blog! I’m Amy Trueblood and I write Young Adult fiction. My favorite story as a child was Marjorie Flack’s THE STORY OF PING. At age seven I decided it needed a sequel, and I haven’t stopped writing since.
Some other unique facts that led to my writing path:
1) My Honors English teacher in high school was a crazy cool Jesuit priest who made us act out scenes from Beowulf & The Aeneid. It was pretty awesome!
2) I have a degree in Journalism – but I never used it seeing as my first job offer was to write obituaries.
3) After college I was an NBC page the year they reinstated the program in Burbank. Four things I learned…
Most actors are short
Some people get pissed if their water isn’t served at room temperature
Jay Leno is just as nice in person as he is on TV
Writing, particularly screenwriting, is a rough gig
Today, I’m a freelance writer who spends most of my time penning press releases for my favorite non-profit. When not “chasing the crazy” dream of being published, I feed my addictions to good TV (Bones, Castle & Fringe), Barnes & Noble and mango ice tea. I write YA, so of course I like to read and review YA – any genre will do as long as the writing is good. My work is represented by the lovely Roseanne Wells at Jennifer De Chiara Literary.
