Amy Pauli is a Texas-born writer and photographer. A passionate storyteller with a penchant for concise and compelling narrative, she studied Literature and Creative Writing at Texas State University and Eastern Washington University, respectively.
At the age of twenty-one, Amy was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis, then became permanently disabled three years later when she injured her leg and pelvis. She began journaling in 2006 to combat the severe depression accompanying her disability, and soon discovered that recording her experiences enabled her to make peace with her limitations.
On good days Amy can be found exploring the back roads of Eastern Washington with her camera in hand, and on most other days working on her novel, a retelling of the world’s oldest and most beautiful fairy tale.
