Amanda is an Aurealis Award finalist and author of 7 science fiction novels, including the best-selling space opera Aurora series and apocalyptic drama The Time of the Stripes.
Born in the seaside/country town of Geraldton, Western Australia, she moved to Perth (Western Australia) to study film & television/creative writing at Murdoch University, earning her a BA in Communication Studies. Perth has been her home ever since, aside from a nineteen-month stint in London (England) where she dabbled in Film & TV ‘Extra’ work.
When she’s not writing/reading books, you can find her indulging in films/tv/art or jumping up and down at rock concerts.
Two new novels are on the way – The Subjugate (SF Crime Thriller), coming November 2018 through Angry Robot Books, and Aurora: Aurizun (Aurora 7), coming January 2019.
