Amanda Leduc was born in Canada and has lived in England, British Columbia, Ontario, and Scotland. She has published articles across Canada, the US, and the UK, was shortlisted for the 2006 CBC Literary Awards, and was First Runner Up in PRISM International's 2008 Short Fiction Contest. In 2012, she was shortlisted for the TNQ Edna Staebler CNF Contest and the PRISM International Short Fiction Contest once again. Her new novel, THE MIRACLES OF ORDINARY MEN, will be published in May 2013 by Toronto's ECW Press.

Amanda likes: chocolate, strawberries, beaches, books, tea, yoga, procrastinating, has an abnormal fear of stairs, and couldn’t whistle or spit if her life depended on it. She has a soft spot for dogs and good photos, and also good photos of dogs. Mathematics and leaking boots hurt her feelings. She carries a big black notebook everywhere she goes and would like, one day, to learn to bake the perfect chocolate soufflé. She is afraid of turtles.
