Amanda’s passion is in taking the ordinary and creating something extraordinary. It is what has fueled her life in many ways from an office career to motherhood, being a newspaper columnist and stepping into writing fiction. Her love for penning "character-driven" stories—many of them romance—allows her to explore the potential and possibility that she believes dwells deep inside each of us. She has been called a "true artist in the writing realm" and while the accolades are humbling, they also challenge her to stay fresh, be unique to her voice, and listen to her readers. Her work is published internationally, in audio, in e-book and in print. She currently writes steamy contemporary and historical romance.
