Gorgeous Sentences, Scary Topics, and Justifiably Angry Protagonists with Author Amanda Jayatissa

We talk about putting language to uncomfortable encounters, “I see what you did there” moments that are streamlined and brilliant, and why you don’t need (and probably shouldn’t have) a strict schedule for yourself as a writer.

We also discuss vibrant settings, happy accidents, and how Amanda became an entrepreneur.

Amanda Jayatissa grew up in Sri Lanka, completed her undergrad at Mills College, CA, and lived in the UK before moving back to her sunny little island. She works as a corporate trainer, owns a chain of cookie stores, and is a proud dog-mum to her two, spoiled huskies.

Amanda is represented by Melissa Danaczko from Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency, Inc.
