Amanda Gannon is an author, artist, and profaniteer who spends too much time around skulls to be considered truly sane. She hoards pirate treasure and cat whiskers, bakes excellent ginger cookies, and wants to be a supervillainess when she grows up.
Despite being told that she would never find love if she didn't stop barking at people, she is happily married to Paul Batteiger. They have two cats, live in Oklahoma, and enjoy watching terrible movies without pants on. Scandalous!
A chronicle of Amanda's exploits (mostly pantsless) can be found at http://naamah_darling.livejournal.com.
Amanda is also half of the draft-horse team behind Adventurotica Publishing, which you can visit right here on Smashwords!
