Amanda is a YA author and proud Nerdfighter. She was born in Deep River, Canada, a very small town without traffic lights or buses, and where stranger safety is comprised of what to do if you see a bear—or skunk. She started reading fantasy novels at 4 and writing as soon as she could hold a pencil. Hopefully her work’s improved since then.
In university Amanda took English, Linguistics, and Asian History, before settling into Archaeology, because she loved learning about the cultures and stories of ancient people. Of course, she didn’t actually become an archaeologist—Amanda has an intense fear of spiders. She prefers unearthing fascinating stories in the safety of her living room.
