With over a dozen theatre productions and a Merchant Ivory film to her credit, Amy Fox's crisp, quirky writing has been turning the heads of stage and film critics since 1999. Time Out New York has called her “a ferocious talent” and The New York Times has praised her “warmth of understanding.” Amy's play, Summer Cyclone, has been produced in cities across the country and her more recent work has played to sold out theaters in New York and London.

In 2000, Merchant Ivory executive producer Ismail Merchant commissioned Amy to write a screenplay based on the premise of her play Heights. The resulting film, also called Heights, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and opened nationwide in June 2005. The film stars Glenn Close, James Marsden, Jesse Bradford and Elizabeth Banks.

Amy continues to write plays, screenplays and fiction from her home in New York City, where she has lived since 1997. She is currently working on a novel. Fox is a graduate of Amherst College and received her Master's degree, in fiction writing, from Brooklyn College in May 2005. She is on the faculty of the NYU/Tisch Graduate School of Film and Television. She is originally from Boulder, Colorado.
