Bio Pic - Amanda Faulkenberry

A.L.Faulkenberry is a 26-year-old writer, freelancer, ESL teacher, and martial arts enthusiast from the USA, living in China. She graduated from North Greenville University in May 2014 with a B.A. in Spanish. In August 2014, she began teaching ESL at a public high school in southern China. After realizing she had ample amounts of time on her hand, she began writing in 2016.

What began as a simple endeavor to fill spare time with something productive quickly turned into a hobby. In September 2016, she decided to use her hobby to see if she could earn a little extra spending money on the side. That is when she started her freelance writing career. Though she only works part-time as a freelance writer, she is often on the lookout for potential clients and writing assignments.

During National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo 2017, she started working on her first novel, Immortality: The Beginning of the End, set to be published Summer 2018.

When she is not writing, she is teaching, practicing martial arts (Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Eskrima), or at home snuggled up with her cats, Monkey and Stinky, watching an action packed TV show or movie.

Her five year plan includes moving to a new city, starting a new teaching job, publishing at least two books, and continuing to grow as a writer. She also hopes to eventually get a strong grasp on the Chinese language but that could take a while.
