My name is Amanda Mae Downey. I'm 22 years old and a proud dog mom, writer, and nautical historian. I'm low-key addicted to Chex Mix. I love the color yellow, tall ships, bad jokes, and most of all escaping, just a little bit. That's why I write.

I'm a big proponent of diversity in writing. My favorite characters include badass ladies, kickass casually queer heroes, and soft boys ™.

Don't be shy! I love to hear from my readers! PM me if you have questions, comments, or ideas.
