Amanda Geisler has been a dedicated reader since a young age, always searching for new materials to devour. She began writing short stories at the age of 9, musing over the worlds she created before being introduced to the world of novels in her early teen years. Amanda is an enthusiastic reader and writer of young adult urban fantasy and paranormal novels.
The White Wolf trilogy has been Amanda’s foundation project. Having started the original version when she was 13, The Stray was a work in progress for several years until she finally finished it in 2016.
Besides reading and writing, Amanda lives and works in Brisbane as an early childhood educator while she continues to study towards a Bachelor of Education at university. Amanda uses her spare time to continue with her writing projects and to attend events such as Supanova and Genre Con.

What inspired you to write your current work:
What genres do you read and write: I read and write a lot of urban fantasy and paranormal novels. Sometimes read horror. Rarely romance.
When did you start publishing with Ouroborus: 2016
Current work-in-progress: The Lost
What can readers expect from you in future: My writing career has taken a bit of a hiatus as my university, personal and working personas take more importance. However, I am working on The Lost and will get it out as soon as it’s ready.
Which of your own characters do you relate to most, and which is your favourite to write: I feel I connect and relate to Rya most of all. Probably because I have spent so much time in her head and some of my personality is in her. I am looking forward to writing from Dylan’s point of view as the series progresses. He is a charismatic, sarcastic and cheerful character that I believe will be interesting and fun to write.
What upcoming or recently released Ouroborus book are you most eager to read and why? I am looking forward to reading Blank. I have had it on my shelf for a few months now and I have been waiting for time to read it.
