Mandy Alyss Brown is the Managing Editor for eFiction Steampunk and a work-at-home mother. She earned her BA in English with a Professional Writing Emphasis at Texas State University where she spent three years as the Writing Center's to-go gal. Before she graduated, Mandy wrote "Shattered," a creative honors thesis that she hopes to one day turn into a novel. Mandy plans to earn her MFA in Fiction, but that will have to wait until her kids go to school. For now she gets to read, write, and manage eFiction Steampunk during nap time.
