Adult bio: Amanda Elliot loves writing books that make her swoony and hungry at the same time. She lives in New York City, where she collects cookbooks, cheers at Top Chef episodes like they're football games, and writes books for teens and kids under the name Amanda Panitch. SADIE ON A PLATE is her debut novel for adults.
YA/MG bio: Amanda Panitch spent most of her childhood telling stories to her four younger siblings, trying both to make them laugh and scare them too much to sleep. Now she lives in New York City, where she writes dark, funny stories for teens, kids, and the pigeons that nest on her apartment balcony.
