Amalie started writing at a young age. She won a young writers award at age 8 for her story Claire Has Kittens. Although she did not know it at the time, writing would one day become a major part of her life.
As a child, Amalie dreamed of one day becoming a musketeer, a pirate, or a wedding planner. So she compromised by becoming a wedding planner with fencing as a prime hobby.
She spent 5 years helping Brides create and achieve their dream weddings. Through this, her love of adventure and telling a story came to life.
Family of Artists
Following the road of adventure, Amalie married into a family of artists and there her road led back to writing. Her husband, John, is a composer/musician and it was through his urging that she once again put her hand to writing. In collaboration with her husband and his two brothers, one a movie director/producer and the other, a stuntman, her first published novel was made available. Anne Bonny The Legend of a Female Pirate is inspired by the screenplay Anne Bonny written by her brother in law, Seth Foreman. A movie about Anne Bonny's life is in the works.
Amalie, John and their 3 children live in West Virginia where she continues to write adventures.
