About Amanda, the Writer

She’s a writer named Amanda who is just trying to write and survive. There never seems to be enough good ideas or enough time to do all the writing she wants to do.

Amanda was born in the Pacific Northwest only to move all around the country as an Army Brat. She started life with diminished hearing which led her to detest reading and writing. Without the surgeries she had as a child to restore her hearing, she would have never developed the love for words that she has today. Nor her adamant opinion on the Oxford Comma.

Amanda spends a lot of  time plotting fiction, usually some kind of thriller. Sometimes she works on non-fiction. Amanda is currently working on publishing a memoir about overcoming childhood abuse. When those two needs are temporarily filled, she spends her time copy-writing, ghostwriting, or technical writing.

Amanda currently lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a quirky dog and 2 rambunctious kittens.
