Musings From the Writing Desk


Amy Benesch headshot
Amy J. Benesch has been, at various times, an actress, a pre-school teacher, a tour guide at Sunnyside, the historic home of Washington Irving (a job that called for her to dress up in a hoop skirt), a hypnotherapist, and a rabble-rouser.

She has published 13 short stories and two novels and seems determined to keep writing works that don't fall into any recognizable genre, making her, as one editor put it "uncharacterizable."

Aside from writing, she also reads tarot cards, does shamanic work, and hypnotherapy.  To learn more, visit her other web site at
