Your story matters.

Hello! I'm Frau Amy Hallberg, Author from Minnesota, exchange student to West Germany turned high school teacher. When my career spun into chaos, those long-ago German lessons helped me revise my life.

You can read my story in German Awakening: Tales from an American Life, 2019 IPPY Bronze Award Winner for Best Midwest Nonfiction. 

As a young woman, I felt called to write AND the journey frightened me away. Do you know that Doppelgänger energy? I can bear witness.

Entering my 40s, I learned to walk that sometimes lonely, often soul-quenching, wild book-writing path.

Now I'm a Book Whisperer & Master Certified Life Coach who guides Creatives into & through their stories, alongside kindred spirits.

Does that name "Creative" startle you?

In Frau Amy's World, my weekly podcast, I present Conversation with Real-Life Creatives who feel the same way. I invite you to listen in.

It's all about making connections and shining our light.

Because this journey is neither a sprint, nor a marathon. It's a pilgrimage with kindred spirits on parallel paths. 

And you know that Book in you? The one you may never write, because REASONS? 

Your heart knows the truth:
Your story matters. 

I'll shine a light.

Story Gathering

There are REASONS why you’re not writing that story inside you. But have you noticed? It's draining your spirit. You can't reason this calling away. Ready to LISTEN to your Muses? It's time.
