Amanda Farbanish is an adult and YA fiction editor living in Brooklyn, NYC. She earned her B.A. in English from Drew University with a concentration in communications and media, a creative writing minor, and an Asian studies minor—yes, it is quite the mouthful. A habitual tea drinker, she loves words in all languages, queer stories, and dismantling flawed institutions (though not necessarily in that order). When she’s not working as a bookseller or writing or editing, she’s probably chasing her cat around the apartment to force it to listen to her newest YA novel idea, or buying way too many comics, or playing a rogue in D&D.
