Amanda Gowin lives in the foothills of Appalachia with her husband and son. Her work has appeared in various publications online and in print, including the anthologies "Warmed and Bound" (Velvet Press), "Burnt Tongues" (Medallion) and the upcoming "Exigencies" (Dark House Press). She is a lover of horses, toads, twins, and cotton candy, and never met a Jack-in-the-Box not conspiring against her. Currently completing her first novel, "Boxing Day," more information can be found at www.lookatmissohio.wordpress.com. She has always written and always will.
