Amanda Brittany loves to write, and she's worn out 495 pairs of writing-socks this year alone.

She's been lucky and had over 170 short stories published in the UK and abroad, and several articles too. She has  a Degree in English Literature and a Creative Writing Diploma.

Her debut novel The Cold will be published this year by HQ Digital/Harpercollins, with her royalties on every download going to charity.
