I’m Amy Sue Nathan, and my second novel, THE GOOD NEIGHBOR, was published by St. Martin’s Griffin on October 13, 2015. My debut novel, THE GLASS WIVES, was published by St. Martin’s Griffin on May 14, 2013. My third novel will be published by St. Martin’s Griffin in 2017. I’m represented by Danielle Egan-Miller of Browne & Miller Literary Associates.
I’ve been blogging in various capacities and at different personal and professional blogs since 2006. In 2011 I launched the Women’s Fiction Writers blog, and just four years later it was named one of Writer’s Digest’s 101 Best Websites for Writers. I teach workshops for Writers Digest University and work as a freelance fiction editor and writing coach. My stories and essays have appeared in print and online in over two dozen national and regional publications including The Chicago Tribune, Writer’s Digest, Huffington Post, Chicago Parent, and the New York Times Online.
I was born and raised in Philadelphia and am a graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism. I’ve also lived in Hershey, PA, Maplewood, NJ, Cleveland, OH, and Tucson, AZ. I’ve called the Chicago area home since the late 1990s, and am the proud mom of two grown children (my favorite oxymoron). Along with being a life-long writer, I’m a dog-lover, vegetarian, and not-so-secret crafter.
Nice to meet you!
