Amanda Ganus is an MFA student at George Mason University where she studies creative nonfiction. A native of Lubbock, Texas, she was raised on football, Tex-Mex, and books, not necessarily in that order. She has brought all of that with her to Fairfax, Virginia where she now lives with her cat, Augustus. When Amanda isn’t working, she enjoys visits to museums, cooking, and watching too much reality television with her partner. Occasionally these activities are interspersed with writing.
