Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXX.
Writing has been a goal of Amanda's for years and her husband provides support for her.
Alongside Amanda will be with 11 other winners from all walks of life, flown in from all corners of the globe. They will be treated to a week-long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges including Tim Powers and Dave Wolverton, followed by the gala awards ceremony.
