Amy B. Scher's Bio
I've always marched to the beat of my own drum, shopping at thrift stores, buying clearance items and deal hunting. So, I'm not sure I have any formal experience, but living it is worth more sometimes. I started off in the insurance industry as a managing editor for a major online company early in my career, soon progressing (depending on who you ask) to the world of politics at a newspaper. I also drudged my way through a short stint as a marketing manager for Harley-Davidson before becoming disabled by a chronic illness and finding my true calling. Writing comes almost as naturally as breathing to me. And I love to write about things that help people save just a little bit of the green stuff along the way; whether that be self-help instead of paying a professional, or learning to negotiate a killer deal. Does that count as experience?
A southern California girl (but not the bratty kind), I switch off between two pairs of shoes (uggs and flip flops), love to play in the mud when I garden, and always cook for an army even though I am only feeding two. I believe kindness is the most important quality in a person; and am one of those people who really does stop to smell the roses while walking down the street.
Now healthy after a chronic illness, I am continuing to write (my first true love) and also lucky enough to be fulfilling my other calling as an energy therapy practitioner for emotional healing. I am doing what I love and something bigger than I ever imagined. Hooray for the road less traveled. It turns out it has all the best stuff on it.
My first book, This Is How I Save My Life: A True Story of Embryonic Stem Cells, Indian Adventures, and Ultimate Self-Healing is now available wherever books are sold.
