Amanda Albright Still has held many jobs since she dropped out of law school: journalist, technical writer, editor, online restaurant critic, and risk manager on projects valued in the billions of dollars. Each of these gigs involved writing, creativity, and some even allowed her to use the occasional adjective. Fiction writing was always something she did on the side until her first novel, “Shadow of Twilight” was published by people who even paid her for the privilege.
Amanda has two college-age daughters who make her proud, and a wonderful husband. Ian, whose Scots accent she can now understand, almost. When not writing, Amanda is a compulsive reader in any genre, but sometimes breaks away long enough to knit or make cheese (Enchilada mozzarella? Not so good, Goatsmilk Camembert? Heaven). She and Ian are in the process of restoring their Victorian home in the historical district of Galveston (in every 100 years a house has stood, you’ll find 75 years of bad ideas).
