Hey, I'm Amy

In this chapter of my life, I'm best described as a writer, editor and content creator. I still use the word 'journalist' because it's traditionally my profession—and it's simpler on my resume—but it's, increasingly, a smaller part of my career matrix.

I live on the South Coast of Sydney with my husband, three kids and four chickens. This is hilarious when I think back to previous seasons of my life: cutting my teeth as a young journalist at the Daily Mail in London; moving to Australia to become editor of Grazia magazine; chasing celebrity stories and sitting front-row at fashion shows.

These days, my work is a little bit less glamorous but equally as rewarding, even more so.

I still write my own content (my next book, How to Raise a Complex Soul will be published by Hay House in mid-2024, and I currently write the hit podcast, The Space, as well as working on a TV show inspired by my first memoir, Wife Interrupted. I also still write articles about topics I'm passionate about cracking open).

But much of my time is also spent guiding other writers, especially people with a very personal story to share—a story that I think can help to 'move the world forward' (that's the slogan of my company, LightWriter Media).

Mainly, I do this through my bestselling course, The Book Writing Remedy, and the LightWriter Mentoring program. I couldn't be prouder of all my incredible, brave and open writers who have gone on to sign book deals and publish their writing globally.

I describe myself as a Holistic Writing Coach. Emotionally and creatively supporting writers is a big part of what I do. In 2018, I completed my diploma in counselling with advanced studies in grief and loss, so that I can sensitively support my writers — producing trauma-informed content is my specialty.

Thank-you to everyone for supporting LightWriter Media, and for all the wonderful word-of-mouth recommendations. Storytelling has always been how we attempt to make sense of each other, and the complexities of life, and we need that now more than ever.

"In a decade as a journalist, I told the stories of hundreds of survivors; interviewing them after their toughest moments. I only realised later, these stories became my salvation — proof that life is messy and crazy, and still wonderful."
