Hi, I’m Amy Clare Fontaine!  I have a bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology with a minor in English writing from Humboldt State University. I’ve studied hyenas in Kenya, wolves in Yellowstone National Park, and hyraxes in Israel.

An active member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and the Furry Writers’ Guild, I write fantasy, science fiction, poetry, and games—about animals, magic, shapeshifters, outer space, love, adventure, and a menagerie of other things. In addition to writing and researching animals, I spend my time roaming wild places, playing guitar, doodling, stargazing, and learning as much as I can. As a Christian witch and a Unitarian Universalist, I care deeply about connecting with something greater than myself and making the world a better place.

These days, the place I call home is a lovely town called McKinleyville in northern California, but I’ve been known to wander the globe.  Thank you for your interest in my work!
