Amy is looking to make a connection. Her writing as an autistic woman is sincere and earnest, and she works hard on every piece.
She cares about writing as a transcendent experience and sees it as a way to access the atmosphere of the mind.1 She approaches it as art.
Because she’s autistic, she see-saws between intense occupation and recovery. Besides writing, she enjoys hiking and ballet, or at least, she did before she got so tired.
She’s been a black belt in karate, a professional reiki practitioner, a yoga teacher, an ESL teacher, a web developer, and a data analyst. Academically, she’s studied drawing, art history, and integral health.
Amy is Japanese-American. Born in Long Beach, CA, she has lived in Wisconsin, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and now lives in Orange County, CA.
