About

Ami

Ami Hendrickson writes children’s books, novels for adults, screenplays, poetry, songs, manuals, and to–do lists that grow faster than Jack’s beanstalk.  She also writes books for famous horse people.  On occasion, she has been so immersed in polishing plot points that she walked out of a store, leaving her purchases behind. 

She fuels her muse with coffee and Earl Grey tea.  While she has a longstanding love affair with chocolate, her obsession with cinnamon red hots borders on the pathological.

In addition to writing, some of Ami’s favorite pastimes involve riding her Percheron, playing with her dogs, teaching writers workshops, smooching her husband or snuggling her daughter during a movie.  And eating the aforementioned red hots.  There is always room at her table for one more plate; always room in her heart for one more critter.

Ami and her family live with their “vast menagerie” on a 100+ year–old farm in southwest Michigan.  A confirmed Twitter addict, she tweets @MuseInks.

[Please note: In the event that science succeeds in creating a working holodeck, Ami will no longer be available to speak at conferences, as she will be… otherwise engaged.  You have been warned.]
