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.

    Amy! I was looking at my old blog where I still have you linked and came here to see if you’re still around. Congratulations on the books–you rock! Hope you’re as fantastic as can be. Best, Carrie from Indiana
