Amanda Ashley writes paranormal romances for Zebra Books and absolutely loves it. Most of her stories are about vampires because, she readily admits, she's fascinated by them. She also admits she doesn't like most vampire movies. She's just not into the blood and gore in living color on the big screen.

She also writes historical romances as Madeline Baker, many of which have been reissued on Kindle with new covers.

She's written over 80 books which have appeared on various Bestseller lists.

When Amanda's not writing, she loves reading (of course), going to movies and plays and spending time with my family. Her favorite movie hero is Thor, and her favoritie singer is Gary Allan (his mother is my best friend). She also love dark chocolate anything!

She also loves all things Star Wars, Phantom, and Beauty and the Beast! Amanda has a large collection of Star Wars memorabilia, as well as Phantom of the Opera collectibles and Beauty and the Beast. She has an adorable Pomeranian named Lady, a mischievous cat named Kitty and a tortoise who remains nameless.
