Amy Joy


Amy Joy earned four degrees and changed careers twice before realizing what she loved most was writing, illustrating, and inspiring others. Now she writes serious and silly stories for adults and kids–because life’s full of seriousness, but it’s no fun without a healthy dose of silliness. Still crazy about her writer husband, CN James, Amy Joy’s writing often features stories she hopes will inspire others to believe that true love isn’t just a fairy tale. Her dystopian romance, The Academie was a Quarterfinalist for the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and became an Amazon Bestseller within months of its release. (Learn more at
