It was a perfect summer evening at dusk. Robert Nutt and his wife were walking down a peaceful street in Asheville, North Carolina, listening to crickets, when they came upon a house with a yard full of dancing, flickering lights. At that moment, Robert knew he would write about it. That night, in bed, the verse just started to come, it "just started spilling out of me, and I wrote it down." The light shone so brightly that he knew he had to share it. Robert is also an experienced designer and "self-appointed digital illusionist" who took the photographs of his daughter that form the photo-illustrations for Amy's Light.
