You might be wondering who I am. Hi, my name is Amy Valentini.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Mary Washington College (now known as the University of Mary Washington) in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I’ve taught high school English, studied paralegal law, worked as a Realtor, as well as owned my own businesses. I’ve worked in offices and written many a letter, contract, and document that made others look fabulous and who had no problem taking the credit. I don’t mind that at all. You see, I enjoy making others look good.
While in college, I earned extra money by typing term papers for fellow students. I was frustrated because I had taken an oath that I would not, in any manner, change their work. Well, I had to type a whole lot of poorly written papers because of that oath. I decided then that when I finished my degree I was going to head to New York City, get a job as an editor in a publishing company and write novels. That didn’t happen that way, but it didn’t stop my dream or my need to constantly correct and edit other people’s work. When I first decided to start my blog, Unwrapping Romance, I had no idea that it would lead me to so much fun and build me such a reputable position as a romance book reviewer. I became one of the first Avon Addicts for Avon Romance, and I’m still active with the group as well as many other bloggers and tour groups.
I love everything about the writing community. My affection for this community drives me to promote it and tell the world about the talent that exists within the realm of all genres, and to help make all authors and their talent shine.
