Hello my name is Amanda Ashley Baus. Writing, storytelling and poetry are an obsession and what brings life into my heart. When looking back on my youth, the ability to form intelligible words always felt like a formality. Discovering that I held a natural talent for storytelling and poetry, I developed a great passion for the written word. This passion has brought me to where I am today having self-published my first work before 22 earlier this year. I hold degrees in both Humanities and Creative Writing, and live surrounded by my loving and ever supportive family in Tucson, AZ.
