Amy Collini is an excavator of the past. Her storytelling–whether fiction or non-fiction–asks this question: how do our yesterdays inform our todays? As a child, she often stood in her grandmother’s bathroom, with one mirror in front of her and one on the wall behind, to examine the reflections; no matter how she situated herself, she could see an infinite number of self-replications just over her shoulder. She likens her job as a writer, in this place and in this time, to the image of the girl standing between those two mirrors.
Collini’s work has appeared in Slice, Baltimore Review, Southern Indiana Review, Redivider, Tahoma Literary Review, Indiana Review and many other publications. She is currently at work on a novel. She lives in Columbus, Ohio with her husband and two young sons.
