Amy Sharony is a pop culture-obsessed book nerd who can spend hours discussing the significance of absent mothers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer but dreads making small talk at her kids’ park days. She has a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in literature and a B.S. in physics, which seems like a perfectly logical combination in her head. Amy teaches creative writing and critical theory classes at her local homeschool co-op and homeschools her two gifted children, who keep her on her toes by being gifted in completely different ways. She also edits home/school/life magazine.
