Among her many contributions to NoveList, Amie leads our Author characteristics team, whose work enables searching by author nationality and cultural identities. Amie also leads our recommendations efforts, continually evolving and adapting our algorithm to provide great read-alike suggestions. And, as one of our most tech-savvy librarians, she is also our go-to person for troubleshooting.
Amie enjoys reading intricately plotted novels with authentic, likable, and well-developed characters; strong females are also a plus! She reads mostly science fiction and historical fiction, although she loves the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency mysteries, too. Outside of reading, Amie enjoys cats, coffee, and traveling to exotic places (usually through reading — still counts though!)
