Amanda Frederickson holds a B.F.A. in Creative Writing and Communications, was a quarter finalist in the Writers of the Future contest, and has published several pieces of short fiction. Keystone is her debut novel.
She blames most of this on her fantastically artistic mother, who encouraged her love of reading from an early age and let her answer questions like "How was your day?" with tales of fairies and troll invasions of the preschool. She completed her first novel length manuscript in fifth grade. The subsequent intrusion of something called the "real world" is being slowly and methodically thrown out the window in favor of her first loves: reading and writing fantastic stories.
