Amy Difar

Biography

Amy Difar has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and worked as a programmer and technical writer for many years. Her college thesis won a writing award, but writing fiction has always been her passion.

As a reader with varied interests, she has found it difficult to limit her writing to one type of story. She finds herself drawn to particular characters and enjoys telling their stories, allowing them to dictate the genre of the book.

She loves animals and likes to use them in her books. Amy has spent years observing cats and trying to discern their true thoughts. She is particularly fond of giving them a voice. When she's not writing, she can be found listening to music, playing with her many companion pets or trying out a new dark and chewy ale.
