Amy Blumenfeld’s articles and essays have appeared in various publications including The New York Times, The Huffington Post, O, The Oprah Magazine, Prevention, and on the cover of People.
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Amy was a shy child who sat in a coat cubby for the first six weeks of kindergarten. Lured out by carrot sticks and crayons, she eventually made her way into the world and graduated from Barnard College of Columbia University and received a master’s degree from the Columbia University School of Journalism where she was the recipient of the James A. Wechsler Award for National Reporting.
Amy has been interviewed on MSNBC, CBS Evening News, FOX News, and contributed to two non-fiction books. She has been a featured speaker for several national organizations and during one keynote address made Robin Williams laugh. It is one of her most treasured memories.
Amy lives in New York where she likes to sit outdoors with her husband and daughter, and create elaborate stories about the people and things they observe. Some of those stories are making their way into her first novel, which she is currently writing.
