I’m Amy B. Scher: writer, teacher, and mentor.

Get My Advice on Great Writing


I help authors with book planning and proposals — no overwhelm, guaranteed.

With no college degree or formal writing education, I’m proof that anyone can become a successful author. Based on my experience with four traditionally published books and work featured in major publications, I can show you how to do it, too.


AMY B. SCHER is an award-winning and bestselling author of four books (translated into 16 languages). With a background in marketing (i.e. Harley-Davidson, State Farm, Scripps Howard News) and publishing, Amy is recognized for her unique ability to bridge the gap between the craft of writing and the business of being an author.

Amy’s work has been featured in The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, CNN, CBS, New York Daily News, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Rumpus and more.

Amy has sold all four of her own books “on proposal” and works with agents and authors to help them do the same. She loves planning, strategizing, and most of all … breaking things down to make things feel more do-able for her authors.

She lives in New York City with her beautiful wife and bad cat where she is proud to serve on the associate board for Literacy Partners in New York City, an organization that chose her memoir, This Is How I Save My Life (Simon & Schuster), as part of the city’s Subway Reads initiative.
