About Me…

Aman­da DeWees received her PhD in Eng­lish lit­er­a­ture from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Geor­gia and likes to star­tle peo­ple by announc­ing that her dis­ser­ta­tion top­ic was vam­pire lit­er­a­ture. Her books include the wide­ly praised his­tor­i­cal goth­ic romances With This Curse and Sea of Secrets, win­ner of the 2012 RONE award in mys­tery, and the Ash Grove Chron­i­cles, a cap­ti­vat­ing young adult “para­nor­mal lite” romance series set in mod­ern-day North Car­oli­na. Besides writ­ing, Amanda’s pas­sions include the­ater, clas­sic film, Ioan Gruffudd, cos­tume design, and the preser­va­tion of apos­tro­phes in their nat­ur­al habi­tat.
