Melissa Kantor

Author of The Amanda Project - Book 1 in the series

So, I was trying to think of a way to introduce myself that wasn’t, like, painfully boring, and I came up with an acrostic—remember those poems you wrote back in first grade?

Mad about Veronica Mars, Sex and the City, summer storms, Chanel Number 19

Eats waaay too much take out (especially Thai)

Listens to the dorkiest music from the 80’s (check out my playlist for proof)

Is writing a new book called The

Secrets of the Darlings

Says “anything’s possible” but can’t stop believing (deep down) that

Amanda’s alive.

Yours Truly,
Melissa Kantor
