Amy Lepine Peterson teaches American Pop Culture and ESL Writing at Taylor University. With a B.A. in English Literature from Texas A&M and an M.A. in Intercultural Studies from Wheaton College, Amy taught ESL for two years in Southeast Asia before returning stateside to teach in California, Arkansas, and Washington. Her wanderlusting soul has finally started planting roots in the Midwest, where she and her husband are raising two small children and a flock of chickens on their own patch of Indiana clay.
Amy enjoys cozy mysteries, screwball comedies, and classic sitcoms—72% dark chocolate, french-press coffee, and very buttery popcorn—international travel, early morning writing, and the idea of gardening—as well as hiking, napping, and experimenting in sustainable practices of living.
