Amy Boukair was born in Cleveland, Ohio. After starting her educational career as a journalism, then psychology major at Kent State University, she eventually graduated from Notre Dame College of Ohio with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Paralegal Studies.
Amy continued on briefly to law school at Cleveland State University, Marshall School of Law, but decided that perhaps there were enough lawyers in the world, so one less might not be so bad. She now works as a paralegal, but has always aspired to be a writer.
Over the years Amy has honed her writing skills, and is now published on such websites as Amazon.com and Lulu.com. She is also an active member of WritersCafe.org and FanStory.com.
Amy's inspiration comes from such authors as Stephen King, Jane Austen, J.K. Rowling, Diana Gabaldon, and many others. She is a voracious reader, and the list of favorite books grows daily, as she believes that to be a good writer, one must read - A LOT!
Amy currently lives in Stow, Ohio with her son, and their golden retriever Abbey.
