ADVENTUROUS READERS WANTED

Still with me? Here's my bio:

Amanda is an archaeologist and anthropologist.

BUT... When she's not out digging holes, dodging large, booby-trapped boulders and finding lost cities, she writes fiction.


She lives on the southern edge of outback Australia on 24 bush acres. There's no street lights and she can't see her neighbours. She likes that kind of thing.


Unlike most Australians, Amanda doesn’t like vegemite. She's also one of only eight people in the land Downunder who has never seen the movie Titanic.


Offer her a glass of red wine and a campfire, and she'll tell you the real truth about doing archaeology in Australia.

Speaks to me

No nonsense. In this world of prizes for just turning up and self-entitlement, Sean calls a spade a spade and tells you how to master your universe.

Bonus points for F-bombs and swearing. Not for wusses.
