Amanda is a creative entrepreneur, photographer, and former web designer who holds a BA in Studio Art, a BS in Graphic Design, an MS in Internet Marketing, and she's working on her MFA in Creative Writing (set to graduate in 2022). While Amanda has spent most of her adult life working in visual arts, her heart has always driven her toward writing.
When she’s not playing board games with her husband or cuddling with her two dogs, Amanda writes contemporary fantasy fiction for Young Adults. She recently published her debut serial book, The Glimmer Princess - Episode One of the Mermaid Kingdom Series, which follows a young girl’s need to be loved and accepted. Yet the protagonist discovers that her own strength and identity are all she ever needed.
Amanda has a passion for helping others and has lived and traveled around the globe on mission trips with her church.
