Manda Collins is an award-winning U.S female author of romance, mystery and thriller fiction novels. Her teenage and current life is characterized by her constant fascination with books. Manda who is currently living in the same house that her mother grew up in is a native of coastal Alabama. Manda prides herself in the fact that she has managed to read lots of books in her lifetime. This is probably the motivation behind her venturing into the world of writing.
The affinity and love for books led her to obtain two distinct graduate degrees, one in English Literature and the other in Librarianship. True to her calling, Manda works by day as an academic librarian at a small liberal arts college where she actively engages with college students, teaching them how to navigate the intertwined world of academic research.
Collins desired to be born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside during her teenage years. In order to achieve this, she spent most of her teen years experimenting with electricity, carrying out indoor plumbing and reading lots of books as a form of time travel to the medieval time. Most of the characters, terminologies and settings in a novels and book series are England based. This might be greatly attributed mainly to her teenage preferences.
Manda Collins is a pet and family person evident by the fact that she currently lives with three cats, a dog and sister who visits her often.
