I'm the author of Tender Points, the editor of Mondo Bummer Books, the co-organizer of Sick Fest, and the host of the Amy's Kitchen Organics reading series. I was the inaugural writer in residence at Alley Cat Bookstore and Gallery and I now help coordinate the residency program. I love independent bookstores very much. I live in a rent-controlled apartment in San Francisco, where Iā€™m writing a novel.
