About Amanda


What can I say? Born...blah blah blah...writer. Right?

Too brief?

Ok Ok, here is a bit more.

I write fast paced fantasy fiction, mostly MG/YA, that will make you binge way past your bedtime and leave you wanting more.

I grew up on the West Coast of Canada and now live in the US, waaay up in the NorthWest corner. Some of my favorite things are: a good binge-worthy series, anything SFF, spending time with friends, making new friends, playing board games, lizards, and pizza perogies. I like to get involved in anti-bullying stuff and encourage young people to see each other as human beings and act accordingly. My first novel Little Lacey has an anti-bullying theme.

CONNECT WITH ME, I would love to chat!

Extra Bio Details:

Obsessive reader, who naturally became a writer.

Massive Doctor Who fan. Celtic Pagan. Demi-geek. Entrepreneur. Excitable. Talkative. Way too talkative. Love being friendly and social, but social anxiety hangover always follows.

Fav Stories of my Youth: Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew, Black Stallion, Dragon Riders of Pern, Watership Down. Anything SFF. Especially Epic Fantasy. See my GoodReads list for more.

Favorite SoBe bottle cap saying: "I love the smell of lizards in the morning."

Why I love Indie Fiction:

I am a dedicated self-publisher. I love being able to share my stories freely and at my own pace. Life is short, gotta move it or lose it.

I love reading fresh new writers with budding talent taking their baby steps. It's the Voices I love. So many different and unique voices to experience. My writers brain is always on, even when reading, how could I not eat that up!

What else is there to say? I am a demi-geek. Which is the only true kind of geek. Because you can't really be a geek if you are fully accepted and acknowledged in any kind of social group. I don't have a real job--you know, like the kind that makes your mother happy. But I do have several businesses. I currently teach authors how to use the Internet and Social Media as a marketing platform (I am not an expert by far, so I prefer the title Author Platform Specialist), and I am Virtual Land Baroness in Second Life where I own a company called Segarra Estates, which continues to produce a small but steady residual income from my loyal virtual customers.

Lastly, I ADORE all of my readers. I think each and every one of you is UH-MAZING!

I think I hit all the major points. If you actually read all that, you pretty much know me in a nutshell.
