Born with a love of scary stories and folklore, Amanda Headlee has spent her entire life crafting works of dark fiction. Most of her work focuses on horror associated with folklore as well as work that would fall into the category of “cosmic horror” – the fear of humanity’s insignificance in the vastness of the universe.
By day Amanda is an Information Services Program Manager, by night she is a wandering wonderer. When she isn’t writing or working, she can be found logging insane miles on her bike or running the back country of Pennsylvania. She’s one of those crazy people who do marathons and triathlons. She is inspired by the works of Shirley Jackson, Flannery O’Connor, Margaret Atwood, H.P. Lovecraft, and Joyce Carol Oates — all who write terrifying tales of their own.
