About the Author

Growing up a word-devourer & avid fairy tale lover, it was only natural that amanda lovelace began writing books of her own, & so she did. when she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found waiting for pumpkin spice coffee to come back into season & binge-watching gilmore girls. (before you ask: team jess all the way.) the lifelong poetess & storyteller currently lives in new jersey with her fiancĂ©, their two moody cats, & a combined book collection so large it will soon need its own home. as of 2016, she is working towards her b.a. in english literature with a minor in sociology. the princess saves herself in this one, originally published in 2016, is her debut poetry collection.
