Kayla has been a writer as long as she can remember. A desire to publish was born of a nickname given to her by her 7th grade teacher, “Great American Novelist”, because she wrote way too much on any written assignment purely for the joy of it. Storytelling has always remained a passion through the art of theatre, where she has worked for the past 10 years. In her spare time, Kayla can often be found geeking over Shakespeare, playing video games, binging Netflix, or taking ridiculously cute pictures of her cats. She lives in Oregon with her husband, Ricardo, and two fur-babies, Vivi and Asimov.
Amanda began writing short stories in elementary school, evolving into fantasy stories by the time she was 13. She met her co-author, Kayla Mansur, while playing one fateful day on Neopets, and it turned into a lifelong friendship based on extravagant worlds and thrilling plots. They’ve written together since then, clocking in over a million words before Amanda’s 25th birthday. Since then, Amanda has narrated and produced several audiobooks for other authors. Her love of the arts developed into an endless endeavor as she explored painting, drawing, ceramics, photography, and digital 3D art. In her downtime, she works on jigsaw puzzles, spends time with her family, and enjoys cooking. Amanda was born, raised, and still resides in the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. She lives with her husband, Adam and her son, Nathan.
