Amelia J. | Founder

If there’s one thing Amelia J. can say for herself, it’s that she hates to talk about herself. She does, however, love to talk books. Hence, the blog. When she’s not reading or writing, she may be found eating her weight in chocolate, traveling the world, or snapping photos.  She makes her home in the land of Ernest Hemingway and Ezra Pound.

She rambles on at her personal blog, Magpie & Muttonfly.
