Amanda began to write around age six, shortly after she realized that she loved to read. Inspired by childhood favorites like Purple Princess Wins the Prize and There's A Boy in the Girl's Bathroom, she moved from beginning-middle-end short stories to longer, more complex fiction. At age 11, she finished a short novel. She also experimented with science fiction, poetry, fanfiction, and fantasy.
Inspiration struck in 2017 when Amanda found a set of Blake and Wordsworth poems about the British Industrial Revolution. She outlined Sweepings of the Street that same day, and it became a full-scale project that is finally ready for publication in 2022.
Along with Sweepings, Amanda has also written several short stories, including a World War One soldier's journal, a coming-of-age story about bullying, and the story of a street thief's plan to break his sister out of prison. She writes poetry, mostly free verse poems about mental health, and is experimenting with writing fiction and poetry in Spanish.
