Member Since
March 2018


Both a reporter and a communication consultant in previous lives, Amanda spent way more years than she wants to admit writing news stories and marketing drivel for other people. Her part-time fiction turned full-time when she and Michael R. Swanson wrote Things They Buried. She is a fan of words and grammar and enjoys exploring how perspectives and circumstances shape the way different people deal with the same world.

Philip K. Dick
“I guess that's the story of life: what you most fear never happens, but what you most yearn for never happens either. This is the difference between life and fiction. I suppose it's a good trade-off. But I'm not sure.”
Philip K. Dick

William S. Burroughs
“Silence is only frightening to people who are compulsively verbalizing.”
William S. Burroughs, The Job: Interviews with William S. Burroughs

Zora Neale Hurston
“Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.”

H.P. Lovecraft
“Never Explain Anything”

Raymond Chandler
“Throw up into your typewriter every morning. Clean up every noon.”
