Amy Hirschman is a translator and pop culture enthusiast (some might say she's one of those fabled "cool geek girls"). She grew up in the town where "Night of the Living Dead" has its origins, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After receiving her B.A. in Japanese and Film from the University of Pittsburgh, she moved to Los Angeles, California and interned as a production assistant at Bang Zoom! Entertainment, an anime production studio.
Since then, she has been working in media and publishing and translating everything from advertising proposals to her first published project for Quirk in 2011, Crafting with Cat Hair.
Amy is not a cat owner herself, but her friends will attest she is the greatest cat-sitter they have ever had.
