Hi, my name is Amanda. I'm a twenty-something girl with a single ambition: finish a novel. Right now, I'm re-working and completing my project from NaNoWriMo 2011-- which I won!-- called Conquest. Please take a look if you find some time; reviews, both good and bad, are always welcome! Learning from my reviews is how I grow as an author.
A little about me... I really love writing fantasy; even when I try to write something in the real world it ends up having some supernatural facet. I'm a bit of a romantic when it comes to my characters, I guess, and I write about people I find the most interesting. I tend to be drawn to darker characters for whatever reason-- perhaps the notion of redemption stirring in my soul and trying to get out. I know I've done a good job when my characters come to life and try to take control of the plot.
Some of my favorite books include the Harry Potter series, the Wicked Years by Gregory Maguire (and, in fact, anything by Maguire), the Wrinkle in Time series by Madeleine L'Engle, the Chronicles of Narnia, John Dies at the End by David Wong, Anthem by Ayn Rand, 1984 by Orwell, The D'Artagnan Romances by Dumas (the Three Musketeers is the best one, though).
I love folk and punk music (and any combination thereof). My favorite singer at the moment is Frank Turner. I like to doodle, but I don't have a lot of real talent. I like to learn about history and one of my favorite hobbies when working on a novel is world-building.
I guess that's it, for now, until I come back a couple years from now and see this is hideously out of date. These profiles really are a lot like time-capsules.
