About the Author/Illustrator
Amy Mucci is an award-winning author and illustrator. She has over twelve years of experience working as a school psychologist and behavior specialist in the Rochester, NY area. Amy is a Type 1 diabetic and wanted to include in the illustrations a diabetic (with an insulin pump and all!) She enjoys spending her free time hiking, reading and adventuring with her husband and daughters (and three cats).
About the Inspiration
Amy was inspired to write The Magic of Words while reading to her daughters. They would focus on a certain word, and talk about a memory or feeling associated with that word. This made her realize how magical words can be, and all the thoughts that are created from one single word! Amy continues to be inspired by her daughters and her students. She hopes that everyone can find words that feel magical to them, and to always know the power of hope and possibility.
With Thinking of Nature, Amy wanted to continue the theme of curiosity and mindfulness. Some of her favorite memories are being outside with her family, and she wanted to encourage readers to make their own connections with nature.
