The Face You See is my debut novel as a writer and inspired the following books of the series. I was born and raised in California where I began volunteering with Youth Programs dedicated to helping teens find mentors. Remembering how lost and confused I was as a teenager gave me the conviction to help those who felt just as alone as I had. I eventually began working in Alaska doing much of the same work before going to Haiti and the Aleutian Islands to build houses, distribute food and medical supplies, as well as disaster relief. I met my husband while working abroad and eventually settled down in Canada where we now have three beautiful children. I am thankful I escaped the circumstances of my childhood but acknowledge the fact that not ...more

Amelia Legend As many of you know my great passion in life is to write stories that speak words of truth. Stories that have meaning because they share an undertone of honesty and transparency about the real issues women face today. The Broken Series was first created to convey a story about a group of friends that struggle to find peace in turbulent circumstances. These issues that are depicted in the series vary from abuse, sexual assault, depression, masochism, and eating disorders while also sharing a journey of love and friendship.

I hope to do these characters justice when I communicate the depths of their struggles and heartbreak as I weave a story that is both thought provoking and enjoyable. I love writing stories (as well as reading stories) that make you laugh, bring you to tears, throw up your hands in exasperation, inspires you to fall in love over and over while at the same time giving you a new perspective to consider. That is what I hope to do every time I sit down to write, but in order to complete this series I need the help of my readers!

If you have your own story to tell and are willing to share please email me at amelialegendnovels@gmail.com.I will be compiling Letter's from The Broken for my blog as well as my books. If you so choose to be a part of reaching out to others in similar circumstances you are welcome to send me the following details.

Your first name (no last names)
Your State or Province
Your consent to post online or in books

And most importantly YOUR PERSONAL LETTER!!

This will be a short testimony about the struggles you have faced or are facing presently that others may relate to. YOUR MESSAGE MAY HELP SOMEONE IN THE SAME SITUATION! Let your letter be your heart open to others, let it be a way for you to help those who need to find the courage to face their own heartbreaks, and let them be a message of honesty and transparency... Please write your letters for others to read for all ages (so keep your language as clean as you can for younger readers), keep them 1000 words or less, and only use first names for privacy reasons (as well as identity protection).

Send your letter to amelialegendnovels@gmail.com

Love, Amelia


Amelia Legend WANTED TO SHARE THE AWESOME NEWS! The Clarion Review gave my debut novel FIVE STARS!!

“In swift and relatable prose, The Face You See juggles the many difficult topics and circumstances that young adults face.”

-Clarion Review
★★★★★

“ ...those who have experienced or overcome traumas will find Dannie relatable and empowering ...”
-BlueInk

“In Legend’s debut novel, the first of a series, a high school student struggles to cope with her troubled family life as her budding friendship with a handsome transfer student grows more serious...It initially seems that this book will present yet another high school love triangle, but the plot surprises and unsettles those expectations. It moves past lighthearted teen drama to present a serious, emotionally affecting coming-of-age tale, strengthened by its protagonist’s subtle development ... Although this is the first novel in a series, it succeeds as a self-contained story about figuring out how to love while negotiating emotional barriers. Even so, many readers will find themselves curious to know what happens next.

An engaging contemporary romance, whose conflicted, nuanced heroine helps it transcend the conventions of its genre.”

-Kirkus Reviews
