A. Kennedy


My name is Amanda and I am writing my first series. The first novel in the series was published in June 2013.

Because I didn't realize how much work went into editing, I decided I needed to go ahead and write a short story. So please check out "The Dance."

My favorite part of life is that I'm a mom of two beautiful children. They are my drive and they are one of the reasons I have decided to push through with becoming an author. Writing has become my passion, and my stress release. I am also currently in school for journalism which has proved to be an exciting field! I'm looking forward to what this world has to offer, and I hope that I have something to offer this world!

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My inspiration is the loud obnoxious alarm clock completely across the room sounding like a rooster on steroids - well, that and the fact I need to get my two kids ready for school. Each day is a new opportunity. You're alive; you're here to witness another day. Make it a good one, and if it's a bad one, well then, shoot for tomorrow morning. Learn something. Always learn! I love to learn and I love to experience new things. With each day I have that new opportunity. And with each opportunity I have to learn it is an experience that I hope to share with my kids - who actually teach me more than I could have ever imagined!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is putting myself into the scene and forgetting about the stress of day to day life for a couple of hours. When someone reads a book that they are into they can almost forget reality until they are forced to put the book down or the ending of the book comes. That's what I look forward to when I write - being completely submerged and getting so wrapped up in my story line and characters that time and reality escapes me. This is the greatest joy of writing!
