about amy l. montz

suffragette

reader. writer. suffragette.

reader:

I love books.  I’ve my life’s work out of reading for a living.  I am an associate professor of 18th- and 19th-century literature and culture, fashion and material culture, secondary education, and young adult literature.  And that’s on a normal day!  I don’t consider reading “fun” as I don’t consider breathing, sleeping, and eating fun. They are vital to existence.

writer:

Given my love of books, it is no wonder I also love to write.  In college, I discovered that despite several years spent believing such, I was not actually a poet.  Or, certainly, I wrote poetry.  It just wasn’t very good.

In 2003, I discovered that in fact, I was a novelist.  I needed elbow room to convey a story well.  Only problem was that I was a terrible novelist.  It took several years of hard work and revision to write a text good enough to send out for review.  Fingers crossed that it all pays off!

suffragette:

The women who fought and even died for me and my Sisters to have the right to vote did so with style, panache, a little bit of violence, and a fortitude and determination I hope to emulate in my own life.  I blog about those subjects I’m passionate about–fashion, reading, style, beauty, writing–in their honor.
