ABOUT
ME

Amanda Zimmermann is a novelist, content creator and editor for several blogs. Many childhood hours spent imagining life as the pirate captain to a crew of stuffed animals transitioned into creating elaborate tales as a teenager. Pursuing a career in writing seemed like a positive use of these great powers — and as they say “with great power comes great responsibility.”

In order to kill time until her untimely end, she spends her free time writing fantasy and sci-fi novels, blogging about and writing video games, comics, books, and leveling up her knitting skills for the end times.

In an effort to add more credence to her writing career but not wanting to disrupt the comfort of her sofa, Amanda enrolled in the online Creative Writing for Entertainment BFA program at Full Sail University from which she graduated despite her best efforts to avoid deadlines. In addition to that accomplishment, while continuing to surf the cushions, she had her short story Into the Depths published on Smashwords and completed a novel titled Hymns of Angels Don’t Sound Like This.

Amanda weaves emotional tales of the supernatural, sweeping space operas, and jaunts through post-apocalyptic wastelands in hopes of ensnaring readers. She currently lives in Michigan with five cats (named after an inventor, a spy, and various foods), her dog, and has two more novels in the works including Wicked Blood, a story of angels and demons, and The Elementals, an epic tale of magic, prophecy, and an ancient evil.
