is A.L. Davroe (but, you can call me Amanda).
I write a lot of things -- sci-fi, fantasy, horror, romance. I love anything that falls under the
"speculative fiction" umbrella -- if it's not real, I wanna write
it. And I also REALLY like to do
revisionist tales and retellings.
There's nothing quite like turning something that people know and love
on its head. Mostly I write these things
for teens and adults.
little strange. I wear corsets and
purple shoes, though not always in the same ensemble. I make cheese for a living and I write as a
hobby. I love animals but I own cats
because, like me, they're independent and discerning creatures. I like that you have to work to get them to
like you. I blush a lot. At, like, pretty much everything. I like sweets...chewy fruity stuff or Cadbury
chocolate? Oh heck yeah, I'm there! Also, chai tea lattes...I don't think I could
live without those, especially during conventions and book deadlines.
I'm damn proud of all of it. My life
goal is to be best friends with Neil Gaiman.
that is a retelling of the Scottish ballad of Tam Lin, is available on
who becomes paralyzed and seeks refuge in a virtual world, that is, until the
virtual world starts to seep into her real world (there's some romance in here
too!). You can pick that up online or at
a bookstore near you. And if you like
it, the sequel (REDUX) is out December 6.
debut horror novel with me called M.I.A. which is about a ghost and a
schizophrenic going up against a serial killer in order to save his latest
victim. So far, readers are absolutely
loving this book because it's nice and unsettling. If you like psychological horror, it's
totally gonna be your thing. If you
can’t wait for it, I’m currently releasing it on Wattpad.
edition of my CITY STEAM COLLECTION, a collection of weird and horrific tales
that take place in a steampunky, paranormals infested alternate world. Don't lynch me if I don't have that done in
time though, I just got handed a super secret project by my editor that you're
probably gonna love way more and that may eat up all my time.
After Dark this year because I'm going to have my most favorite readers of all
with me: my mom and my grandmother! It's going to be their first time at AAD, so
I'm going to be showing them the ropes, but that doesn't mean that you
shouldn't come say hi -- especially to my grandmother, she likes to make
friends with everyone (especially if
they like books as much as she does). If
you'd like to catch me, I'll be attending all the meals as well as speaking on
a number of panels and, of course, I'll be there for the signing. I'm so excited to meet you!
