WritingRoom.com — an online community for aspiring writers to engage, encourage and appraise one another’s work — announces the 3rd place winner of their Author Launch Contest, Amanda Crum.
Amanda Crum, a freelance writer from Lexington, Kentucky, unleashes her debut novel “The Fireman’s Daughter,” a mysterious tapestry of familial loss, intrigue and illusion. “The Fireman’s Daughter” renders the story of a young woman who is trying to unravel the mysteries of her mother’s life and untimely drowning that occurred while she was just a child. She seeks answers from her estranged father, entering a proverbial rabbit hole, raising more questions and putting her life in jeopardy as she learns about a strange coincidence and a gift that she had inherited from her mother.
Already published in several online forums (Farmhouse Magazine, Suspense Magazine) “The Fireman’s Daughter” is exemplary of a top-notch talent at the top of her literary game. An untimely drowning, an estranged father, mysterious disappearances, deep familial secrets, and a profound sense of danger, all inhabit the imagination and world of Crum’s lyrical and fiercely deep story.
Not all stories get a happy ending, but recently Amanda Crum, now a stay at home mom and published author, has signed her first deal with a literary agent. Currently Amanda is working on her second novel titled “The Wilds.” Being a published writer has allowed her to live one more dream: she can now Google herself.
