About Amy

Amy M. Young

I was born in Miramichi New Brunswick, and lived my young life between New Brunswick and NorthWestern Ontario, before returning to the east coast for my post-secondary education, where I met my husband.

My family has a long history of musicianship and being involved in all aspects of the arts, and I am no exception to that. I play many instruments – I first learned to play the flute, and then learned to play the guitar – I still have my first guitar! I also have always been writing – as long as I can remember – probably not too long after I learned to read. I decided to combine writing and music after being inspired to write my first novel, and I haven’t looked back!

I currently live in the National Capital Region of Canada with the aforementioned husband, our young daughter and our small zoo.

For fun Рoutside of writing РI play the bass guitar, poke at websites with sticks and occasionally dabble in cosplay. You can usually find me behind a camera as well, photography is one of my passions.

I’m also a mental health advocate – I have battled depression since puberty, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Social Anxiety.

I currently am working on the first draft of my second novel, but my current short fiction can be found on this site under the “Fiction” tag, and prior/future speaking engagements can be found in the Speaking section.
