Meet the Author: Amy Allgeyer

Amy AllgeyerAmy Allgeyer was born in Kentucky and grew up in North Carolina. The youngest of seven kids, she dreamed of being a writer since she learned to make her letters face the right way. She now lives in Idaho with her brilliant son, a feral house cat, and a fake owl named Alan. As an architect, she spends her days remodeling historic homes and hopes eventually to find a secret passageway to…anywhere.

Amy’s debut novel, DIG TOO DEEP (Albert Whitman, Spring 2016), is a Young Adult contemporary. Pitched as an Erin Brockovich story set in coal country, 17-year-old Liberty is sent to live with her grandmother in Kentucky after her mother is arrested during a protest.
