My name is Amy Gregory and I am so excited to be working with Barclay Publicity. I have always loved reading contemporary romance since I started sneaking them, uh, well—way too early. However, I didn’t set out to become a writer.
Instead, I married my high school sweetheart and we have been running an IT company since. Cruel joke if you ask me. I swear computers hate me! We have three kids, going all different directions simultaneously and add in hubby’s travel—poof, there started my writing career. I couldn’t sleep one night and started writing out this dream I kept having. The next thing I knew I had two of the five books in my first series written ten days later. (Told you—totally can’t sleep when he’s gone!)
From there, it’s become my true passion and all the pieces finally fell into place. I still work full time with our company, run to ice hockey instead of motocross races with our youngest, help fill out college apps and am travel the country checking out campuses with the oldest while playing taxi driver to our middle one who is a social butterfly. But in the early minutes of the morning, stolen moments at the office or even on desperate occasions when I run away to Starbucks—I write.
I have found more than just a missing part of the puzzle, though. I love my sassy, smart-ass characters, I love happy endings and more comedy than angst. But honestly, through readers, reviewers, fellow authors, awesome people who’ve stepped up to assist me in more ways than I could ever count, editors and my brilliant cover designer…I’ve found people who I truly love like family.
Like I said, I write snarky, sassy characters because they say “write what you know”, well, I’m a self-proclaimed graduate of the school of hard knocks with a double minor in smart ass and humor. There are events, comments, pieces of me and people I know in each of my books. I’ve started at the prompting of my husband, posting videos on my website with insights to all the books. So keep checking back with my site to find out all the dirty details of what sparked this or that. And keep in touch, I love connecting and meeting new people.
Coming soon from Amy and the Finding Perfect series:
Jessica Pierce left Denver years ago with nothing more than her clothes and a need for a brand new beginning. After planting roots where her car broke down, life was good for a while. Then the ranch owner who helped her rebuild her life threw her a curve ball. Now she’s the new girl in Renlend, Kansas on the Montgomery’s ranch, and their son Easton is a constant source of frustration and distraction. Getting her hands around the veterinarian’s neck and squeezing looks better by the day.
After a week of stepping around each other, dodging barbed comments, and Jessica’s smart mouth, Easton realizes she’s got more fire than any other woman he’s met. Suddenly Easton wonders if this curvy, blonde spitfire might just be the challenge he’s been waiting for.
