Amanda Schmidt


I love dreams that allow us to think outside the box, and become more than we thought we could be. I love writing, hiking, soccer, practicing Tai Chi, going out dancing, reading, and listening to music. I love Star Wars and DC Super Heroes. I thank the Lord for blessing me with the family and dreams that keep me writing.
