Hi! I'm the author of novels for teens and tweens as well as picture books for toddlers. I love writing stories that will make you laugh, sigh, swoon...and if I break your heart I promise to patch it up by the end. :)

I live and sweat in Phoenix, Arizona with my hubby and a new puppy who is training us.

I'm not sure where it comes from, but I actually think realistic young adult novels today are changing that. I can't speak to every book, of course, but I've read many novels that show a grittier, more realistic vision of addiction, and mental illness. I can tell you that for me, personally, one of my goals while writing DIE FOR YOU was to address the type of romanticization you're asking about. I wanted to strip the romanticism from the idea of "dying for love." I wanted to show it for what it is: manipulation and emotional abuse. I hope that answers your question. Best, Amy(less)
Amy Fellner Dominy Hi Christine. Thanks for thinking of me. I think you mean the list of books by Jewish authors? Yes, I'd love to be listed there, as well. :)

Drum Roll Please!!


I’m so excited to tell you about my newest teen novel!! A new book is always a thrill because it never comes without a ton of hard work and angst and uncertainty. This book is the same–but also very different.


About 18 months ago, I’d had it with all the bad news that seemed to hit with as much regularity as the sun shines here in Phoenix.  I was ready to start a new book pr...
