Amy Baskin

Amy writes to help interpret reality and sometimes to escape it. Her limited concept of home decorating involves stacks of books—in corners, on tables, where the TV used to be. With a background in teaching English as a Foreign Language and educational writing for grades K-12, she loves making science, history and mythology fascinating and accessible to younger readers. Her work has appeared in various publications including Stories for Children Magazine and Reading Local: Portland. In 2014 she won the Pacific Northwest Plein Air Writers People’s Choice award for her poem, Snowbound: Day 6, Imagined. She enjoys collaborating, particularly with Jason Baskin, her husband and in-house illustrator.
