PLEASE MAKE WELCOME BEST SELLING AUTHOR AMANDA MCINTYRE
My dad, as it happens was a regional rep for a large magazine publisher, so I grew up perusing such classics as Vampirella and Monsters, Inc. magazine. I love Alfred Hitchcock stories as well as Poe, so it’s a wonder that I don’t write more paranormal I suppose.
I think I’ve evolved into a storyteller. I am an artist and my dream was to be an cartoonist for Disney, but life happens (as it often does) and I like to think that I now paint pictures with words.
Out of all the books you’ve written, do you have a favorite and why?
None of them. LOL Is that weird?
line in a song, observing people in real life, a news clip…its often said
authors are like sponges absorbing the emotions around them…so true.
I love spending time with family and friends. Getting back to nature, walking, traveling the backroads of this country, being near the Great Lakes-(yes, any of them, I’m obsessed)
There is tons of advice out there. Learn your craft. Nurture your imagination. Be kind. Be tenacious. Understand there will be hills and valleys, it’s about doing what you love.
Amanda has been
referred to as a "true artist in the writing realm' and her zest for life
inspires her "character-driven" stories. Her passion is to take
ordinary people and place them in extraordinary situations, delving into the
realm of potential and possibility as she watches them become the heroes and
heroines of their own stories. She counts herself fortunate to be able to do
what she loves, aspires to stay fresh and unique to her voice and listen to her
