Amanda M. Blake is a cat-loving daydreamer who enjoys geekery of all sorts, from superheroes to horror movies, from urban fantasy to unconventional romance.
She was born and raised in Texas, attended Trinity University in San Antonio, and graduated in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in English, although she also enjoyed her many explorations into gender studies, the social sciences, religion, and geology.
Still in the process of finding her personal normal, she supplements her mild hoarding tendencies and dreams of gothic minimalism with day-job data entry and analysis.
Her first book, YA horror novel Nocturne, debuted Halloween 2017, and she introduced the fairy tale remix Thorns series on Halloween 2018, with the sequel coming out Halloween 2019. There’s really no significance to the Halloween release dates. She just likes that time of year.
