Happy Saturday, y'all! Since I'm seeing so many new faces around here, I thought I might tell y'all a little about myself:
I'm Mandy and I manage this page and @haintbluepublishing
I live in Georgia with my husband of nearly 25 years, our two human boys, Jalan + Devan, and two new puppies, Kirby + Indy.
I know it sounds hokey and dramatic, but I've been an artist and writer since I was three and five years old, respectively. I started out drawing, of course, but over the years I've mastered most all mediums. Although I don't draw or paint much these days, I am a professional graphic and instructional designer, so I get to design and be creative every day. I also design all of my book covers. As for writing, I wrote my first story when I was five.
I've published nine novels to date, all of which I've written under my two pen names, A. Lee Hughes and Mandy Lee. My genres are upmarket, literary, fan fiction, romance, and contemporary fiction. I also write poetry and... my WIP is a nonfiction book to help other writers like me.
What else? Oh! I love lists. And since I love a list, I'll list a few random fun facts about me: INFJ and Enneagram 4 D/C DiSC (eagle/owl) Ravenclaw Sagittarius My lucky number is 52 I'm obsessed with color, coffee, Tarot, diversity, movies, travel, The Office, reading, the ocean, the moon, music, and lots more cool stuff. I've earned my Bachelor and Master of Science in Psychology and I'm a Master Trainer Haint Blue Publishing Company is my side hustle in which I enjoy helping other indie writers. I'm currently taking clients for 2021!
It's a pleasure to meet y'all!
