Amy Cissell

Author of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. I am a writer. Always a reader. Sometimes a runner. I’ve been a marathoner and a triathlete. I’m a seasonal gardener, a sporadic cheesemaker, and an occasional baker.
I adore cheese and French 75s. Rosé in the back yard in summer is one of the best experiences in the world. I am not crafty, but every once in a while, Pinterest makes me think otherwise.
My daughter is the light of my life, the reason for my rapidly graying hair, and one of the smartest, funniest, & most exasperating people I’ve ever met. I have several tattoos, a normal amount of piercings, and not nearly as many beautiful high heels as I used to (damn you, aging and foot surgery!).
I’ve been writing stories for as long as I can remember but didn’t publish my first novel until I was 40. I’m not fond of heights, or crowds, or people in general. I do like travel, though, so I put up with flying coach until such time as I have my own private time machine (and/or airplane). I live in Portland with my kidlet, my husband (the beer guy), and four cats (RIP, Mr. Fish).
Buy my books, hire me, or just comment on my blog to tell me I’m pretty.

Y'all. ALL Y'ALL. I am so close. SO CLOSE! (Something a lot of exes have heard and ignored...) ANYWAYS! The Dark Throne, Eleanor #7, is super close to the end.... Read More "The Dark Throne is Imminent!"

Happy New Year (The Year of the Dragon, Cissell III)

Can you believe it's already the year of the dragon? That's full on bananas. Every month, I promise myself that I'll be better at blogging - get back into old... Read More "Happy New Year (The Year of the Dragon, Cissell III)"

It really is the apocalypse

Here I am, writing twice in one year - in one very short period of time, even! And also, I'm not sure if you've noticed, but some of the horse... Read More "It really is the apocalypse"
