Amanda Lonergan is a freelance children’s writer, poet, blogger and mother of two young boys. Living in rural Hertfordshire she spends her days juggling family life, studying psychology and trapping any spiders under a glass for her husband to later remove! Amanda is serious about writing but her writing is not always serious! Concentrating on short stories for children aged four to seven years old, Amanda aims to engage and entertain children with funny characters, rhythmic rhyme and gentle wit.
Amanda also enjoys blogging about the variety of reading material available and finding ways to encourage children to read in her “Books for Children Blog” where she shows how reading extends beyond the pages of a book and attempts to convince everyone that her dislike of zombies is totally rational!
Alongside her blog Amanda shares some of her poems, DIY writing prompts for children, interesting links to book related articles and events and anything that will help you drive your children bonkers about reading through her Facebook page.
