Amy Cory
On her 45th birthday, Amy Cory began a blog to: a) launch her writing un-career; b) heal others with spiritual insights and meaningful prose; c) complain publicly A LOT; d) speak of herself in third person.

Amy is a sum of her parts...a mother of two good men, a committed wife (or she will be when he files the commitment paperwork), a teacher of authentic human beings (first graders), a runner, an amateur philosopher, and a hell of a cook. She has been writing since Kindergarten. Her earliest work included an excellent piece about dinosaurs.
