Meet the Author

Before becoming a mother and a writer, Amy Tiemann was a neuroscientist who combined her love of science and her love of education into a rewarding career as a high school teacher. She took time off from this profession in 1999 to stay home with her first child.

These years at home allowed her to explore a new creative path as a writer. In 2004 she published her first novel, the wilderness adventure High Water, written for a middle-grade audience.

Tiemann tapped all of her experiences—research, writing, and in-the-trenches motherhood—to create Mojo Mom: Nurturing Your Self While Raising a Family. Today, through her books, seminars, and interactive web site (www.mojomom.com), Amy Tiemann helps other women discover and reclaim a strong sense of self as they grow as mothers and individuals.
