Amanda Foody has always considered imagination to be our best attempt at magic. After a double life as an accountant preparing taxes for multinational corporations, she now spends her free time brewing and fermenting foods much more easily obtained at her local grocery store. She lives in Boston, MA with a hoard of books guarded by the most vicious of feline companions, Jelly Bean.

She is the author of THE SHADOW GAME series and more. Her middle grade debut, WILDERLORE: THE ACCIDENTAL APPRENTICE, is available now and ALL OF US VILLAINS, co-written with Christine Lynn Herman, releases in November 9, 2021.

“People do not play this game to win, my dear. They play this game not to lose.”
Amanda Foody, Ace of Shades

“She was the girl who’d come afraid to the city that could smell your fear. She’d faced the witch. She’d poisoned the wolf. She’d strolled into the land of death with her head held high and left it a lord. She was an impossible player in a fixed game, the only person not playing to win.”
Amanda Foody, Ace of Shades

“Now, as she held her breath and desperately searched the faces of strangers around her, she felt that she was more broken than not. One exhale, one sob, and all her pieces would shatter.”
Amanda Foody, Ace of Shades
