About Amy


After a zillion years earning a Ph.D., a grueling climb through the academic ranks to get tenure, and a thousand and one nights up grading papers, Amy threw it all away to write about dragons.

Okay, maybe not all of it.

Amy is deputy editor and columnist at The Public Medievalist and co-author of the forthcoming book, Misusing the Middle Ages. She’s also Conference Director for the International Society for the Study of Medievalism and rants about medieval things as @drdarkage.

But the other half of her life is spent writing about dragons, and she couldn’t be happier.
