Amanda Staples

Amanda Staples lives in Bristol and is a short story writer, playwright and aspiring novelist who enjoys moderate success which she is humble about. In her other hat (not the one that makes her look like Miss Marple) she is a Clinical Hypnotherapist and uses her fascination of the mind to inspire her work. She has a minor obsession with death and tea. When she isn't obsessing or writing, she can be found indulging her anthropomorphised dogs.
