About Amy

Amy King had two life-long ambitions. The first, to be a parent, was achieved after a challenging ten-year wait. She’s now a full-time mother of three with one ambition—to become a successful writer (as in, one who actually makes a living). She’s somehow managed to keep all three kids alive (thus far) and release her first novel, The Whisperer.


A belief in better things to come gets Amy through life’s inevitable challenges. As a writer, she explores the depths and heights of human experience, giving you characters to connect with. Already onto the next book, she’s hoping success comes sooner than ten years this time. Meantime, she’ll happily settle for getting a book in your hands and helping you feel something beautiful and personal.

Amy dyes her hair ridiculous colours, and cannot grasp the fact that she’s getting older.

Events are now in motion that will reveal a terrible secret and expose a killer.
