With a love of scary stories and folklore, Amanda Headlee spent her entire life crafting works of dark fiction. She has a fascination with the emotion of fear and believes it is the first emotion humans feel at the moment they are born. Most of her work focuses on dark fiction associated with folklore and cosmic horror. The fear of humanity’s insignificance in the vastness of the Universe intrigues her.
By day Amanda is a Program Manager; by night she is a wandering wonderer. When she isn’t writing or working, she can be found logging insane miles on one of her many bikes or hiking the Appalachian Mountains.
As an endurance athlete, Amanda is a coached athlete with Sonic Endurance, shop ambassador for Giant of Bridgeport-Village Velo, 2021 guest rider for Dirty Kitten Racing, and an Orange Mud product ambassador.
Amanda wrote of monsters and lore in her debut novel, Till We Become Monsters. Her macabre short stories appear in several anthologies, such as Midnight from Beyond the Stars, CONSUMED: Tales Inspired by the Wendigo and Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity. She is also a book reviewer and co-editor for The Horror Tree’s Trembling with Fear.
