Meet Author Amanda Jay!

Meet Author 
Amanda Jay!

My name is technically Amanda LaFuente. Crazy I know! Especially since all my readers know me as Mandi Jayy. I used MJ because I was terribly shy to tell others about myself but with a lot of encouragement, I went with using my name and my father's last inital. (Very long story to get into that one. hehe)

I started out reading books every so often until I read the Fifty Shades Trilogy. Then I went a little overboard reading anything I could get my hands on. It was literally four to five books a WEEK! Then I got bored reading the same story lines and stopped buying books for a while but since I was waiting for the sequel to my favorite book (Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire), I started a FANFIC blog on the story and to my surprise, it was a huge hit!

I got quite a few messages asking and suggesting I write my own book and after some hesitation, I've decided to go along with it! I never thought it would be something I would be interested in, but I've realized how much I love it. I wanna write to get my story out there. Regardless of what others think, I'd never write to make money. If anything, it's costing me a bundle to publish this book and if only a handful of readers get to it, I would be perfectly fine with it. I'm hoping to release my first book sometime this August, if not sooner. (It's still in the early process.)

I still work part time so it's a bit hard to write. I come home to clean and cook, then tend to my fiance and our four year old daughter. I'm in the middle of planning a wedding and my sister's baby shower, so as you can see, my life is head on hectic. Great things take time though... or so I heard.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I love writing them! Tootles!
MJ
