Amie Kaufman had the good fortune to be raised just one block from her local library, and took full advantage of that fact growing up. She and her sister spent their childhood summers re-creating their favorite books by camping in the back yard, mapping their neighborhood, climbing trees, stepping through magical doors and sailing the local seas. Raised in Australia and Ireland, she has kissed the Blarney stone six times, thoroughly cementing her gift of the gab.
As she grew older (but not up), she continued her education, and graduated with honors degrees in history, literature and law, and a master’s degree in conflict resolution. These days she's a full time writer, which makes it easier to indulge in her passion for travel—she's often in the USA, Europe or Asia.
Amie lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband Brendan and her rescue dog, Jack. She still sails, and though she climbs fewer trees, she remains partial to investigating the occasional magical door.
Every month, Amie and her co-author Meg put out a newsletter featuring behind-the-scenes peeks at their writing, book recommendations, writing tips and exclusive giveaways! You can sign up at www.thesebrokenstars.com or on her website.
