Mandy is a stay-at-home mother of 3 children who are her primary joy and focus.
Mandy’s passion for the written word began with the bedtime stories her mother would read to her. She has been a writer since the age of 7 years old when she wrote her first short story “Jane the Tiger”. It was written in crayon and on construction paper, but that was the moment she knew what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. Her love for fictional worlds has traveled with her throughout her life.
Mandy is the founder of Rhetoric Askew which she considers it an honor to operate with her closest friends and allies in this business whom she deeply respects for their skill and dedication to the craft of writing.
Mandy has published her first chapbook which was a cathartic experience to write and create, The Mind of the Muse, available on Amazon. Her work can also be found in the Our Write Side Anthology. She is currently working on two full-length manuscripts due out in 2018. In the meantime, she posts her flash fiction and poetry here and in the Facebook writing groups Rhetoric Askew and Elements of Genre Writing.
Mandy loves to connect and share with other like-minded followers of fiction.
