Amanda managed to resist the siren call of her characters as long as she could, until Felicia hit puberty and the snakes started sprouting from her head.
Thus began the YA trilogy Teen Fury.
The first book Unleashed is currently FREE!
The second book of the trilogy is a wonderful portrait of a young girl/woman who has lost her way.
The third and final book of the trilogy is about Felicia maturing and having to find herself in a world that has become alien to her.
This book is a must read for mothers and their daughters! (The young men in my life have also enjoyed reading the entire series.)
Amanda also has an adult novel in which she turns up the heat.
Amanda is currently working on a small town romance and I can't wait to see what she does with it.
