Amanda Lynn is not an instrument (that’s a mandolin) nor a culinary implement (also a mandolin). According to her parents, aliens dropped her off on their doorstep; she hopes the aliens will return for her before it’s too late. Her Earth legacy thus far includes writing for video games, infrequent appearances in literary spaces, and (predictably) a cat. Hailing from New England, she insists, “He’s a wicked cute cat.”
