Amy Barry


I am a teacher and writer of children’s books. During my childhood, I spent my time reading books, singing and snuggling with my cats. I am a member of SCBWI and write picture books.

Growing up in Hong Kong with teacher parents instilled within me a love of dumplings, Chinese New Year and lanterns.

My inspirational mum was a primary school teacher and I followed in her footsteps. This means I can share the joy of picture books with my class every day.

When I am not teaching or writing, I sing in an amazing women’s chorus called Dubai City Sound

I call Dubai, U.A.E my home and I live with my husband, twins and two huggable rescue dogs.
