Amy Asbury is the author of four books: The Sunset Strip Diaries, Confetti Covered Quicksand, Valley Girl and Fuzzie Wuzzie, most of which detail her life in Los Angeles. She is a two-time breast cancer survivor and a lover of all things pop culture. She is a collector of candy, toys and vintage advertising and her favorite places to be are book stores and antique shops. She adores the following things in no order: Retro Saturday Morning Cartoons complete with a bowl of Fruity Pebbles, really strong coffee, 1940s Big Band, Campfires, Christmas Trees, and baby bunnies. She plays tennis, in vintage LaCoste or IZOD of course, and loves to Boogie Board in the ocean. She loves cool packaging, design and illustrations by Charley Harper, Alain Gree and Miroslav Sasek and is always on the lookout for new inspiration. Her favorite writers are Truman Capote, J.D. Salinger, Mary McCarthy, E.B. White, and Judy Blume. Amy loves finding new authors to read. She loves the films of Martin Scorsese, Sophia Coppola and P.T. Anderson and will always appreciate the old Hitchcock films. She hopes to make a documentary film one day, on what, she is not quite sure.
Amy can't wait to be eighty-five years old with a turban, mu-mu, and a little monkey on her shoulder. She insists she will be joyous and colorful at all times, and may even take up smoking just so she can use one of those long cigarette holders. These days she is very involved in her community and looks to empower women and girls as best she can. She currently lives just outside of Los Angeles with her husband and son.
