Anais Nin believed, “We write to taste life twice – in the moment, and in retrospect.”
A glutton for life, experience, and adventure, Amanda writes to learn more about herself and her landscape, which historically has shifted more often than remained the same. She relies on images as the gatekeepers to these journeys and she writes with the hope of leaving a lasting picture in her readers’ minds.
Although chatty to a fault, Amanda strives to strike the less is more balance by challenging her creative nonfiction to exist in flashes – a form that requires the exact right word accompanied by indelible images. A challenge of tasting life twice in small, savory bites.
