Author has written 2 stories for General, and Sci-Fi.

Hey there!

I've only uploaded two short stories so far, but I plan on adding more. I would love it if you would read and respond, and criticism is always, always, always appreciated. After all, we only improve through practice, experimentation, and taking criticism seriously.

If you'd like, you can call me Amanda, but I'll also go by my FP username too. For those interested, 'esiban' means 'raccoon' in the Ojibwe language. I like writing based on what I've learned and what I know. I'm double-majoring in American Indian Studies & Spanish at university, so you're going to see influences of these two areas of study on my writing.
