About The Author

Amy Markham has a vision: to heal one million little hearts.

As a doting mother and step-mother (pictured here with her one-year-old daughter Maddie), Amy’s heart ached to see her sensitive, 9 year old step-son Jake struggling to process his worries and fears, which would most often plague him at bed time.

After creating a home-made worry doll and story which helped Jake manage and overcome his worries, she had a vision to share her creation with other parents, carers and professional support workers to bring comfort to children who might be struggling with big, tricky feelings.

Sleep Tight Worry Doll is Amy’s first self-published children’s book, with several other titles already in the works, all centered around healing “little hearts”.

She is based in the Gold Coast, Queensland (Australia) and although she’s exceptionally proud to be a published author and founder of Little Healing Hearts, she insists her greatest achievement is being a mum to her two beautiful kids.
