Amy K. Rognlie won her first contest for her debut story, “My Pet Kangaroo” in second grade. Since then, Amy has gone on to author two novels and one novella for Barbour Publishing, as well as a self-published historical novella, Miss Opal Makes a Match. She also writes adult Sunday School curriculum, devotional material and educational website content, but her first love is fiction.
Amy is a middle-school language arts and Latin teacher at a classical Christian school, where she enjoys teaching students who love to read and write. After living in Colorado for most of their lives, she and her husband now make their home in Central Texas, where they will soon be empty-nesters. They have three sons—two who are grown and one almost—and one small granddaughter. And while Amy does not currently have a pet kangaroo, she does have two dogs.
Amy is active in jail ministry as well as in her local church. She loves reading, writing, gardening, leading Bible studies and speaking to women’s groups.
Her current favorite verse is Deuteronomy 33:27, “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”
