Amanda is represented by Analieze Cervantes and Jennifer Herrington of the Harvey Klinger Literary Agency. Amanda queried her first finished manuscript Sever My Soul for about 4 months and her second manuscript Vampires Are the Worst, which she wrote in one week, for less than a month ultimately leading to her offers of representation. During the querying process for her first manuscript she received 2 full requests and one partial request and for her second manuscript she sent out only ten queries and received five full requests with 2 offers of representation. Aside from working her way through the querying trenches herself, Amanda is also a literary intern with Art + Deco Literary Agency where she has been exposed to the importance and guidelines of what goes into the perfect query letter. Amanda has also worked as a mentor in the WriteMentor’s summer program. Finally, Amanda has her BA in Professional Writing and has received an honorary Distinction in Writing from her university’s Writing Department for her Senior Thesis and Portfolio.
