Welcome to the World of A.M. Bochnak

Get to know Me

I am obsessed with fantasies, apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, and dystopian stories. I can’t get enough of them. The more people that die, the more I love it. Kill all of mankind and I will forever be a fan.

Morbid, I know!

I can’t explain why. The more action, death, and gloom – the more I love it. One day I am writing motivational self-help encouraging others to follow their dreams and the next I am killing off characters in my novel. Go figure.

Regardless of how many people I kill in my stories, you’ll find a common theme in all my work: empowering women to be strong leaders and to follow their dreams. My fiction writing aims to portray strong, powerful women – both good and evil. I want my work to show all sides of women, who we really are to our core; as leaders, mothers, wives, and friends, as well as back stabbing bitches. My goal is to capture the emotional state of women in our rawest form.

My education and years of work experience as a research environmental scientist also has a strong influence on my stories and my love for science fiction. I always try to tie in something related to nature and evolution into my stories.

Be sure to check my site often for updates on my current and future projects. I am always writing stories and you never know where one might take me.

Fantastical Dreams: Path to Full-time Writer

As with any career in life (no matter what age you start), it takes time to build up success to the point you’re actually making good money at the profession. Let’s look at my day job. I didn’t graduate with my bachelor’s degree and start making what I make now. Nope....

The Process of Writing

Re-post of Guest Blog on Miss J. Mentions...  I’m often asked about my writing process and for advice on how others should approach writing a novel. I wish there was an easy answer to this question, but it’s surprisingly a hard question. When you break down writing a...

What Readers are Saying!

A soft release of my debut novel, Fortitude Rising, happened on June 5 2018 as an eBook only. I couldn't be more pleased about it's performance and the initial reviews I've received from readers just like you. These kind words and 5-star reviews warm my heart and...

A new Cover REVEAL

Where has the time gone. Looking back over my previous announcements, I posted my cover reveal last August and announced that my book would be released in March. In case you haven’t noticed, that didn’t happen. Why? Life is always in flux and we must be ready to go...

When the Road Ends. Dealing with Expectations

And you hit a wall so hard it knocks the breath out of you. Sometimes we’re led down a path we think will improve our life. We get over excited about it and our expectations go through the roof. Sometimes that path is good, and our high expectations are met with great...
