Amy Trueblood grew up in Southern California only ten minutes from Disneyland which sparked an early interest in storytelling. Her debut, Nothing But Sky was a Spring 2018 Junior Library Guild Gold Standard selection. Her second novel, Across a Broken Shore, also a JLG selection, was named a Best Feminist Book in Children’s Literature by the American Library Association. It also won the Gold Medal for Historical Fiction in both the Independent Publisher Book Awards and Moonbeam Children’s Awards. Fueled by iced tea and a good Spotify playlist, you can often find Amy settled in a quiet corner at her local coffee shop plotting her next book.
