- Author BiographyMy name is AME Wren, and people call me Amy. I have enjoyed an interesting life, especially, as my experiences span two opposites of Western society. At first, I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth, allowed to sit in the back of a chauffeur-driven limousine to be taken to school. But a few years later - Was it providence? Was it rebellion? Or even boredom? - I made a fateful decision when I married a previous Hell's Angel turned Christian. This initiated a dive into the red-hot lava of survival where none of my upbringing counted. This may sound a harsh swing of fortunes and too far from safety and comfort, but there are two sides to the coin. It seemed almost a privilege to taste the freedom of living outside the cocoon world of bank-accounts, mobile phones or household bills. We travelled all over Europe and brought back diaries full of fantastic memories, as well as a deep understanding that tolerance and acceptance are wonderful marks of being a human animal. In 2001, I acquired an MA in Women Studies from Cambridge UK Following the death of my youngest son in a road traffic accident, I started writing prose. In 2009 I self-published my first fiction/fantasy trilogy, 'Normsville'. 'Wolfmother' contains memories from Amsterdam. A story from Berlin is in the publishing process.
