Amy Voltaire

Amy Voltaire makes a living as an accountant but spends much of her free time writing. She has always loved to write, but it wasn’t until the sixth grade when she was invited to attend The Young Author’s Conference that she realized she might have a knack for it.

Having grown up in an alcoholic home, she knows firsthand what it feels like to be a teenager with an addicted parent. She wants to share the effect this illness has on others.

Amy Voltaire has lived in Yorktown, Virginia her whole life. She makes a living as an Accountant, but spends much of her free time writing. She is a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) in Toastmasters International. During her journey to become a DTM, she has written and given over sixty speeches, winning several contests in the process.

When she’s not working, writing, or attending Toastmasters meetings, you’ll find her watching tv with her best buddies (her dog and cat), reading a book, or going to her favorite restaurants with her son, Chase.

Amy is, in many ways, still a child at heart and therefore, loves all things magical. She loved the first Harry Potter movie so much that she went and saw it a second time by herself.  She admits to having zero fashion sense, always opting for comfort over appearance, and being completely unable to walk in high-heeled shoes.
