Amanda Helms

Amanda Helms (she/her) is a biracial Black/white fantasy, science fiction, and sometimes horror writer whose stories have appeared in or are forthcoming from LIGHTSPEED, Uncanny, FIYAH, Diabolical Plots, and other fine venues. She lives with her family in Colorado. Though all of them are natives, none ski or snowboard, proving that such creatures indeed exist. When not reading or writing, she’s likely chasing after her toddler, cooing over cute puppy pictures, or thinking that she really should find more hobbies to list in her bio. She’s represented by Paul Lucas at Janklow & Nesbit. Find her at and on Twitter and Instagram under @amandaghelms
