A storyteller on the page and for the stage, Amanda McTigue’s debut novel, GOING TO SOLACE, was published in August, 2012 by Harper Davis. Already a favorite with book clubs, Amanda spends a lot of time in conversation with readers and writers through appearances both live and live-remote via Skype. Her works for the stage have been produced in venues ranging from Carnegie Hall to the Minnesota Opera. A member of the fourth class of undergraduate women at Yale, a stage director and a concept writer for international entertainment firms like Walt Disney Entertainment and Paramount, Amanda is one busy, happy writer. She has a collection of short stories, tentatively titled ” This is Not Water” due in 2015, and a second novel, “Monkey Bottom”, in the works.
These days, she lives and writes in Sonoma County, California. You can keep up with her doings at
