Amy Dean Hoff spent years travelling across the United States, living out of cars and cheap motels. She was a weightlifter and streetfighter, collecting monster legends across the country. Eventually she left the USA and continued travelling around the world. She is now a folklorist and historian specialising in monsters. She has never owned more than what can fit into a backpack and a suitcase.


She is also a model, actress, writer, and director.  She founded a theatre company in Glasgow, Scotland, where she directed various cult classics for five years. She adapted Man in the Iron Mask and Good Omens for the stage. Cult Classic Theatre then became the foundation for her production company, Cult Classic Pictures.


Her web series, Caledonia, about a police station in Glasgow run by monsters, has been nominated for awards at festivals all over the world. The third instalment, a fantasy horror feature film entitled Burns Night, is currently in post-production.

The first novel in the Caledonia series is now available, as well as her memoir about living for over a decade on the road, American Drifter. Both books were published by Erebus in 2017. Her tropical fantasy novel, The Connoisseur, is also available through Erebus.

Hoff's Scottish Highland lesbian time-travel romance, My Heart's in the Highlands, was published by Bella Books in 2020.
