Because God still does things...


About Amy Joy

Amy Joy is a geochemist and teacher, paleontologist and ghost writer who lives in the mountains of northern Idaho. She's written several dozen books and more than 900 news digest articles, some of them typed from back lab rooms and rocky, dusty parts of the earth. She enjoys digging up dinosaur bones in Colorado and Wyoming or using her microscope to spy on bryozoans from the Permian rocks of Nevada. Mostly, she likes hunting down the answers to life's biggest questions.





Amy Joy's Science & Wonders series offers the true tale of a geology student and her  professors, a warm friendship, and a little controversy. It involves snowstorms and police, death and dreams - and miracles. A terrible chasm appears to loom between faith and science in academia, yet we find God still shows His power and kindness in this world of hard, cold rocks.

True Life Stories


Amy Joy spends her summers on elk birthing grounds, where she's working to  develop a refuge of peace and beauty for those rescued from human trafficking, a place to rest and heal before going out to face the world in their new lives. It's also the perfect spot for a future summer camp, complete with a sandy swimming hole.

Amy Joy's book 2020: When Hindsight Becomes Foresight tells the story of Dodge Journey Spicer, who expected to slip out of bed on February 2, 2020, but instead finds that she'd rewound to 1980 and now faces a dangerous world as a four-year-old child. She has no family or home, but she does have an adult's education and a memory of the next 40 years... 

A Little Fiction

From Here to There

Ocean To Mountain Publishing was formed because we saw the miracles of God being done in our small world, and we discovered that we were not alone. Everywhere we went, from the Puget Sound to the mountains of West Virginia, we heard our human brothers and sisters describing God's work in their lives, and we wanted to tell their stories to the world. This company is young and we have only a few books right now. Fear not. More will be on their way.

Our Next Project - The Pastor Tim Remington story!!


We love letters from our readers and interested parties. Especially if they're throwing interesting parties. We do not accept manuscripts, but feel free to send a brief query letter if you have a true story about miracles God has done in the lives of real people.
