In Case You're Wondering About Me

Ami Allen-Vath

YA Author





I write young adult (YA) novels and live along the shores of NJ with my husband, two children, and dog Yoda. I was born and mostly raised in Minnesota, lived and loved in NYC and GA, so those places hold tiny (big) pieces of my heart. 


​I love: books, theatre, great and terrible TV, lilacs , writing while vacationing, and ice cream.


Things I'll never love: cilantro, zoos, and awkward cartoon impressions.
