About the author (1996)

Amy E. Dean began her career as a best-selling author and nationally known speaker by writing books on self-help and motivational topics. Her first book, Night Light: A Book of Nighttime Meditations, sold over half a million copies since it was first published in 1986; this bestseller made her a sought-after lecturer and workshop leader on a national level at health care organizations, colleges and universities, government-sponsored programs, businesses, radio talk show, and public television.Since then, with sixteen books to her credit, Amy has continued to research and explore issues that are relevant to everyday life. Her spiritual, self-help, and inspirational nonfiction goes right to the heart and soul of her readers, offering inspirational ways to approach life with greater interest, understanding, and commitment to self-growth. More recently, Amy's nature-themed works inspire her readers to seek connections with the natural world in ways that raise awareness about the environment and, as well, urge a deeper consciousness about the valuable and vital connections that need to be made between nature and mankind.Amy graduated in 1975 from Skidmore College with a B.A. in English. Thereafter, she honed her writing skills in publishing, advertising, and marketing and fostered speaking, motivating, and educating on the junior high school, college, and adult education levels.
