Introduction for AmandaDollak
My name is Amanda R. Dollak. I am a mother of two young children with a BS in criminal justice. I am a freelance writer, poet, blogger, and aspiring novelist. I have been writing most of my life; however, I didn't start writing professionally until August of 2008. I have three blogs and have contributed to a number of sites in the past, including Yahoo! Contributor Network (closed in July 2014) and Helium. I am currently focusing on private client freelancing, as well as working on a novel, a collection of short stories, and an anthology of poems that explore faith and hope. My hobbies include photography, reading, sketching, cooking, hiking, and mountain biking. My favorite food is tacos (Mexican food in general, really), and my favorite drink is iced tea.
