Amy Joy wanted to be Santa Claus when she grew up. Not realizing until much later that she would never grow a beard, she set out to make people happy. But she noticed early on that life and the world we live in is quite a complicated thing, so she began writing to make sense of it all. Her first book, THE ACADEMIE, attempts to deal with some of serious issues of life, while revealing that true love is more than just the stuff of fairytales and love really can conquer all. Most of her current work(s)-in-progress deal with similar themes, though some deal in just plain silliness--because life is no fun without it.
