I usually go by Mandy (short for Amanda) I write SF/F but within that subject matter I find the paranormal the most alluring. I recently started blogging about the ups and downs of trying to find an agent and the publishing process which I have found VERY therapeutic. I'm a wife, and a mother. I love to read. I can usually devour a book in a day or two. Music is pretty central to my life. I think it boosts my brain activity! I listen to just about everything; 90's alternative, contemporary, hip-hop, pop and classical.
Almost anything by Bernard Cornwell but particularly The Warlord Chronicles and the The Saxon Tails, The Servant of the Bones by Anne Rice and any of the Vampire Chronicles, as well as The Witching Hour series, Harry Potter, Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange, The Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, The Twilight Saga, Any and all Shakespeare, Tolkien, I could go on and on and on.......
