Amanda is intuitive and empathetic and has been blessed with psychic abilities – clairvoyance, claircognizance, and mediumship.
Amanda’s writing focuses mostly on witchcraft, spirituality, paganism, and the occult, but has explored other topics and themes in poetry and fiction. Amanda’s expresses her passions, pains, wit, and wisdom through a variety of genres- poetry, short stories, content writing/articles, blog posts, novels – and she is thrilled to be co-authoring her first book with a well-respected author (more on that in time!). Amanda has been writing since she was 18 months old when she began drawing smiley faces on scrap paper. She learned to read at a young age (3 years old) and has since consumed countless books. She has wanted to be a writer ever since the Berenstain Bears (even though she remembers them as the Berenstein Bears) transported her to a land where a family of bears lived on a sunny dirt road in a great oak treehouse.Amanda draws inspiration from a few different sources: her life, as a parent, as a witch, as an artist; her experiences – and the rest she credits to Inspiration, which she sees as an external force, who carefully chooses which ideas it bestows and upon whom. Understanding how people work, both on the macro and micro levels, has greatly influenced Amanda’s writing. It’s important to know how people work, what makes them tick, what matters to them, and the world they live in. Humans are fascinating, and the magic of people is what Amanda’s muse thrives on, which is why Amanda’s education has played such a major roll in her writing. In 2010, Amanda graduated cum laude from Emmanuel College (Boston, MA) with a degree in Sociology and Psychology. Amanda was awarded Distinction in the Field of Sociology for her thesis, a qualitative research study that took a sociological and psychological approach in the examination of the effects of incarceration on women – an unprecedented topic at the college.
