Amy Impellizzeri is a former corporate litigator, start-up executive, and award-winning author of fiction and non-fiction, featured by, among others: ABC27, The Huffington Post, TheAtlantic.com, and Law360.
Amy was a corporate litigator for thirteen years - including a decade at Skadden Arps - before transitioning to the executive team of an award-winning start-up company in 2010. She is now a novelist, educator, and a frequent invited speaker at Lawyers in Transition Meetings, annual Bar conferences, and creative writing workshops across the country.
Amy is a member of the Tall Poppy Writers, an innovative marketing co-op of award-winning, best-selling and acclaimed women writers and co-founder of the group’s innovative Facebook group, BLOOM (bit.ly/areyouinbloom). She is the Past President of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association, an international community of 900+ writers. Amy is also on the faculty of The Yocum Institute for Art Education in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, where she runs the creative writing program for teens and adults.
Amy is active in her Pennsylvania community, working in fundraising and development for causes that inspire her. And when she is not working or sitting outside of soccer, football, or hockey practice, she can be found writing in her home atop a mountain in rural Pennsylvania, drawing inspiration from her husband, three kids, an energetic Weimaraner named Cocoa, and a bottomless cup of coffee.
