Amy Laurens is an Australian author of fantasy and science fiction for both adults and young adults. At present, Amy lives with her husband Boy, her son SmallBoy, and a yellow Labrador who thinks he is a lapdog. His nickname is Sir Pees-a-lot, because he does. Surprisingly, the dog is the most jealous of the time Amy spends on the laptop. After completing a university education involving many twists and turns, through more faculties than ought reasonably to exist, Amy now spends her day as a high school English teacher. No, she is not going to do your homework for you. Not even the English bit. Sorry. Have a cookie instead.
