About Amy Tokic

A huge fan of free Wi-Fi in airport lounges, Amy Tokic usually fills the 3-hour wait time before her flight leaves by catching up on her writing assignments. She misses those little packages of peanuts they used to give out on flights and doesn’t mind sitting in the aisle seat. Amy likes writing about the sordid underbelly of airport intrigue with strange and usual stories that probably won’t make the 6 o’clock news.
