Amie Borst

I'm the mom of this operation but that doesn't always mean I'm in charge.

I've been writing for as long as I can talk...and if you know me, that's a loooong time. I married young (just before my 21st birthday), followed my husband around the country as he served his nation in the Air Force, and put my writing pursuits aside for many years to raise a family. But in 2008 I read a book that inspired me so much, I put pen to paper and started writing again. In a few short months I'd completed my first (still yet-to-be-published) YA novel.

When Bethanie came up with the idea for Cinderskella in early 2010 I just knew it was the perfect thing for us to work on together.

We wrote Cinderskella, never dreaming that it would land us a three book deal. Being published together has been a wild ride and we wouldn't have it any other way!

I'm a PAL member of the SCBWI and one of the founding members of the group blog From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle-Grade Authors! I love pink, glitter, unicorns, and chocolate but not necessarily in that order. You can find me on various social networking sites mostly talking about those things. Oh, and occasionally about books, too!
