Even at a young age Engy enjoyed writing in all forms, although creative writing is where she flourished. Engy attended the University of LaVerne in Southern California, where she majored in Broadcasting and became a member of Sigma Kappa sorority, an organization she continues to hold near and dear.
Engy landed her first job in Los Angeles in the entertainment industry where she got her first taste of working with celebrities, coordinating red carpet events and overseeing press needs. Over the next decade, Engy worked across various sectors of brand management, leaving behind the glitz and glamour of “the biz”, although its imprint stayed with her enough to influence her debut novel.
Engy actually started writing A Leap In Time a few years after graduation. But for some reason, the timing for completing her novel was off. It wasn’t until she married her long-term boyfriend, Brian that the pieces began to fall into place. While honeymooning in Italy, they made a life-changing detour to Pompeii. A Leap In Time was originally set in England during the Jane Austen era, but Engy felt an immediate magnetic attraction to Pompeii and knew without a doubt that it needed to be the focus of her story.
Engy lives with her husband, two active toddlers, and super hyper dog on Long Island, NY. She is currently working on the second novel in The Travelers series.
