Amy Beeman is a writer and native Floridian based in St. Petersburg, Florida where she lives with her husband and their two little boys. She earned her B.A. in Creative Writing from Eckerd College and her M.A. in Journalism and Media Studies at the University of South Florida St. Pete. Amy contributes to two other Bay Area publications: Creative Loafing and St. Pete's Green Bench Monthly. Prior to that she spent a year as a volunteer blogger at Tampa's WMNF.org., and the better part of another year writing satirical news from the future. Amy has also been published on Salon.com and in BUST Magazine. For fun she likes to see live local bands but because she has kids she usually ends up listening to her excellent record collection at home. She also loves kayaking and swimming in Florida’s beautiful springs, Mexican food and a good night’s sleep.
