Amanda Linsmeier is the author of two poetry books, Like Waves and Our Wild Magic. Her work has been featured in Moonchild Magazine, Feminine Collective, Portage Magazine, Literary Mama, Brain, Child Magazine, and more.
Besides poetry, she loves fables, fairytales, and fantasy, and sometimes she pretends her Hogwarts letter is still coming. When she’s not querying her grown-up fairytale retelling or writing a new, macabre YA fantasy, she works part-time at her local library and brings home more books than she has time to read. Amanda lives in the countryside with her family, two dogs, and a half-wild cat.
For her, writing is the best kind of magic, and her work is heavily influenced by mysterious women, nature, and beautiful images, and fueled with lots of iced coffee and background music. She’s the kind of monster who dog-ears book pages, and she has read her favorite book, Beauty by Robin McKinley, probably a hundred times. She loves pizza, tattoos, shopping, and pretty much anything French.
