Hi, I’m Amanda and welcome to Needle & Bow. I’m a writer living in the Midwest. I wrote under various pen names for ten years before retiring those and launching Needle & Bow in 2020. My work now explores the creative side of death, including topics in embodiment, eroticism, and history. I am currently researching Midwest death history and living my best Graveyard Granny life.
I was born with nerve damage and live with chronic conditions, so I write about that sometimes as well.
My current works in progress include a short story collection, non-fiction projects on Midwest death history, and a video series about local cemeteries.
Thanks for joining me.

Why Needle & Bow?
The mission of Needle & Bow is to connect my body & my thoughts through writing & art that explores death, eroticism, embodiment, & history. To create meaning in our lives we must sew together our fantasies with our reality & our pasts with our present in ways that are both sharp & delicate. Needle & Bow is where I can explore & create then share it with others. Thanks for stopping by.
