Amy enjoyed a 35-year career in transplantation and retired from UCSF in 2014.   Her recently published, debut novel, Cut: a Medical Murder Mystery, has received several awards including winning in the 2017 Independent Press Awards.

Cut reflects her knowledge of and passion for organ donation and transplant issues in a suspenseful, yet humorous story, set in the Bay Area. It has been referred to as a page turner, and a mystery with a mission and a side of humor.
