Hello! My name is Amanda Starks.

I'm a young adult and adult fantasy writer from Austin, Texas who also dips her toes into content writing ( book, anime, TV show, movie, and game reviews ), shorter creative writing such as short stories and poems, as well as creating fun experiences and narratives around my book and gaming communities.

I've been writing for over a decade now and have jumped around to several universities and online creative writing programs to sharpen my literary sword. It hasn't been the most straightforward journey ( I almost became a geologist instead! ) but it's been one that has taught me a lot about kindness, patience, and the importance of fostering creativity and safe places in our youth and in our adults. 

I hope you find a kindred spirit here, if not in me, then in the content that I write.
