About Me

A Minnesota girl, born and bred, Amanda started writing stories about teenage girls and their social missteps when she was in high school. She still has the handwritten notebooks.


Amanda is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, with a BA in both Speech and Hearing Science & Child Development. She went on to get an A.A.S in Sign Language Interpreting and worked as an interpreter until her first child was born. She’s the author of the high octane Jessica McClain urban fantasy series published by Orbit, the Sin City Collectors paranormal romance series, the contemporary fantasy Phoebe Meadows series, and the futuristic/dystopian Holly Danger series, and the brand new futuristic thriller Mina Kane series.


Look for these books everywhere. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and sweet rescue dog. Find overly cute pictures of doggie & co. on instagram: @Author_Amanda
