After being raised in Birmingham, Alabama, in a rather restrictive environment, AMY PLUM escaped to Chicago to an even more restrictive environment at a university that expelled people for dancing. ( And where she was know to the dean ’ s office for “ wearing too much black ”.) After all of that restrictiveness, she was allowed to run far far away, specifically to Paris, France, where she only wore black and danced all she wanted.
After five ears in Paris, she entured to London, where she got an M.A. in Medieval Art History, specializing in Early Sienese Painting ( 1260-1348) mainly because it promised almost no hope of finding a paying job afterward.
Amy managed to find work in thi world of art and antiques in New York. But after almost a decade of high-pressure lifestyle in the Big Apple, she wapped her American city for a French village of 1300 inhabitants.
After signing with HarperCollins for the DIE FOR ME series, Amy left her job as an English professor at Tours University to write full-time. She still lives in Paris with her two kids and her black lab, Oberon.
She is a huge fan of Edward Gorey and Maira Kalman ( and collects both of their books/art), as ell as David Sedaris, Amadeo Modigliani, and Ira Glass.
