Amylynn Bright was reading well before kindergarten and has had a book in her
hands ever since. In fact, she once swallowed a bug while walking home from
school because she was too busy reading.
The natural progression from reading to writing began with the completion of
her first novel, The Lonely Crayon, in the third grade. A poignant character
drama of the white crayon, it won first place in a school competition. With
novel-writing firmly in her grasp, she evolved to writing screen plays to
entertain her girl-scout troop, and advanced to a soap-opera worthy drama in
Amylynn was sure that her masterful theatrical skills would translate into a
Hollywood career, so she entered film school and wrote several screen plays
which are safely tucked away where no one will ever see them until she’s dead.
She also enjoyed writing murder mystery scripts for a theater company, but was
somehow unfulfilled when the characters constantly ended up dead.
She’s dabbled in horror (the endings are happy but gory), poetry (for about
twenty minutes on a particularly angst-filled day in her teens), suspense (much
too difficult), children’s books and, laughably, music lyrics.
One day, a dear friend handed Amylynn a romance novel and told her to read
it. The literary snob in her rebelled, but thanks to an exceptionally long stop
light, she picked it up and angels sang. Thanks to Julia Quinn, Amylynn fell in
love, so to speak, with romance. She has read approximately 564,493 romance
novels since that fated stop light moment and figured she’d give romance writing
….And they all lived happily ever after
