Amy grew up in a shoe-making, beer-brewing town in England with her mum and dad, two sisters and many, many pets. She went to Loughborough University and studied Fine Art but after graduating and working in a primary school, realised what she really wanted to do was make children's books. Izzy and the very bad burglar is her first picture book, published by Sky Pony Press. She is represented by Plum Pudding Illustration agency.
