Amanda was first published in The Sydney Morning Herald at the tender age of seven with a charming poem about the joy of Christmas.
Since then, Amanda has gone on to enjoy wider publication, including opinion pieces and feature articles across major Australian mastheads and industry magazines.
Amanda’s competitive spirit extends from the page to the small screen, having won prizes for both her fiction and her quiz show prowess.
Amanda identifies as a “plotter” and sprinkles commas like salt. She is currently procrastinating on her third middle-grade novel, set in an abandoned theme park.
