A WARM AGENCY WELCOME TO AMY M. HALE! Amy M. Hale is an award winning essayist, novelist, slam poet, and frequent featured performer at the annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. She lives and cowboys on the 50,000 acre Spider Ranch in Yavapai County, Arizona.

Her first essay collection RIGHTFUL PLACE (Texas Tech University Press) won a Willa Award, one for which her subsequent novel, THE STORY IS THE THING was also shortlisted. Hale’s most recent essay collection ORDINARY SKIN is an exceptional revelation of mastery of metaphor and visceral lusty prose, inviting readers to press, skin-to-skin, into that place between their inhabited identity and their place in the world. Hale’s new essay collection DRINKING WILD WATER will be available for consideration in late September. Amy is represented by Sandra Bishop, sandra@transatlanticagency.com
