Hello! I’m Ames Pointer. (You can call me Amy.) As an author, I enjoy exploring many different genres, but as a reader, I love a good thriller, horror, fantasy, or self-help book. Books on various religions and spiritualities line my shelves, and I hope that my exploration of philosophy comes through in my writing, not necessarily from a set perspective, but one that any reader could enjoy regardless of their religious beliefs. 

 As a homeschooling mom to three wonderful kids, my life is an ever-evolving adventure. Alongside my role as a not-so super mom, I am an animal lover. Someday, when the world realizes what a magnificent storyteller I am, I’ll buy a farm and collect a variety of creatures that can provide us with necessities while we give them a pampered, beautiful existence.

I am a lifelong learner. I feel like every single day provides us with endless opportunities to learn something new, or to find ways we can change ourselves for the better. Through my writing, I strive to share these life lessons with others through the use of fictional characters and situations, so we can all foster understanding of each other and the ‘why’ behind things, and then, we can grow together.

As an artist, I find solace and creative expression in the world of Fine Art Photography. I try to learn and use other methods of making art, but so far, my talent lies behind a lens. I endeavor to convey the raw beauty of the world we inhabit, especially by showcasing things that are around us every day that we take for granted and don’t notice their beauty. I view my art as another form of storytelling, and you can view more of that on my website.

I would love for you to join me on this storytelling journey as we delve into new worlds, weave fairy tales into new narratives, embark on thought-provoking introspection, and explore the sometimes difficult world of our own mind. Together, let's weave stories that ignite minds, nourish souls, and celebrate the remarkable diversity of human experiences.

Orphan, widow, and recovering alcoholic Lyla McGovern is at odds with everything out of her control: from God all the way down to her friends.

When her twin sons stumble upon Beau Kellen, their new (and only) neighbor ‘out in the middle of nowhere’, Lyla is furious to find herself landlocked by her high school boyfriend and at odds with his increasing romantic advances.

As their relationship grows, Lyla must face the troubles she’s tried to avoid: her grief for her husband, her long simmering feud with her best friend, and her longing for a connection to the Almighty.

When another catastrophe lands in Lyla’s life, will she continue to find fault in her maker, or come to terms with the things she can’t control?

Inspired by the Book of Job and Steel Magnolias “The Faultfinder and The Almighty” is the first volume in The Cypress Creek Anthology.
