Skills and experience:

Amanda completed a Bachelor of Communication majoring in writing and screen production at Griffith University in 2003. The Managing Director of Australian eBook Publisher, a self-publishing service, Amanda is a multi-skilled communicator and designer. She has knowledge and experience in writing, editing, publishing, graphic design, book layout, web design and marketing.

She also uses her small business marketing expertise to assist other businesses and organisations through her business Greenslade Creations.


Born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia in 1982, Amanda was raised in a healthy, happy home with an older brother and an older sister. She began writing at a young age and completed her first manuscript at age ten. It was an 8,000 word novella about a white bobcat in the wilds of the Canadian Rockies. With a passion for animals and creativity throughout childhood and her young adult years, Amanda continued to bring her interests into everything she did.

Amanda’s Bachelor of Communication at Griffith University encompassed a wide range of topics, from creative writing and video production through to marketing, psychology and literary criticism. If there’s one main thing she learned from her time at university, it was how much she still has yet to discover.



Since becoming a mother of two boys, and running a business full time, Amanda has not had a lot of spare time. When she does manage to find time to herself she enjoys creating and consuming anything to do with fantasy, science-fiction, historical fiction, science and animals, (books, movies, TV, games), she's a supanova nerd, and spending time with her family and friends.
