Amy Friedman

Genre: Writer



Since 1992 I've written the worldwide syndicated column Tell Me a Story, myths, folktales, fairytales and myths--in 2010 I'll surpass Scheherezade's record, and the stories have spawned two book collections and three audiobooks ( and I also have published two memoirs, Nothing Sacred and Kick the Dog and Shoot the Cat, with a third soon to be published--the story of my seven-year marriage to a man in prison, Desperado's Wife: A Memoir. My stories appear in several anthologies and have appeared in newspapers and magazines as disparate as The New York Times and Harrowsmith Country Life. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, the writer and teacher Dennis Danziger, and I teach creative writing at UCLA Extension.
