About Amanda Hocking

Amanda Hocking (born July 12, 1984) is an American writer of paranormal romance young adult fiction.

Early life

Hocking was born and raised in Austin, Minnesota. After high school, she studied Human Services while working in a group home for people with disabilities.


While employed as a group home worker, she wrote 17 novels in her free time. Hocking left her employment as a group home worker and started self-publishing in 2010, at the age of 25. She's since published over twenty novels, several of which made the New York Times Bestseller list.

In April 2010, she began self-publishing her novels as e-books. By March 2011, she had sold over a million copies of her first nine books and earned two million dollars from sales, previously unheard of for self-published authors. In early 2011, Hocking averaged 9,000 book sales each day.
