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

Get My Advice on Great Writing


In addition to my own work, I help other writers get their ideas into books and their books into print.

With no college degree or formal writing education, I’m proof that anyone can become a successful author. With four traditionally published books and work featured in major publications, I’m here to help you. No overwhelm, guaranteed.


AMY B. SCHER is an award-winning and bestselling author.
With a background in both publishing and marketing (i.e. Harley-Davidson), Amy is recognized for her unique ability to bridge the gap between the craft of writing and the business of being an author.

Amy has sold all four of her books “on proposal” and has worked with agents and authors to help them do the same.

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

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 my memoir, This Is How I Save My Life (Simon & Schuster), as part of the city’s Subway Reads initiative.
