Amy Atwell

Founder, Manager

With a vision for helping others, Amy Atwell has been building communities for goal-oriented authors since she founded WritingGIAM in 2004. In 2011, she received the RWA® Service Award for the scope of her volunteer activities. She honed her organizational skills as a theater production and stage manager, then went on to 15 years of retail management where she specialized in organization and problem-solving. A 2008 Golden Heart® finalist, Amy’s 2010 debut release LYING EYES is a contemporary caper that blends mystery and suspense with love and laughter. She self-published AMBERSLEY in 2011, which hit the Top 100 Books and #1 in Historical Romance on both Kindle and Nook and has since sold 100,000+ copies. If you Google her, please note she’s not the doctor, photographer or West Coast actress. Read more about her on her website.
