Hi, I'm Amanda! I'm one of those geeky writers who have been writing since they were old enough to hold a pencil, though I didn't get very serious about it until my mid-20s. I've had a couple short stories and a poem published, but have focused on writing novels since 2006. Nothing published yet, but I hope to rectify that soon!
Outside of writing, I'm a stay at home mom with interests ranging from running to world cultures to linguistics to building gingerbread houses. I'm sociable and love to chat! :)
