Amanda Hyde

Amanda Hyde is one of the most promising young Canadian writers to emerge in years.
Born Jan. 13, 1979, in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Hyde's interest in writing began in high school in Moncton, New Brunswick.
It has now resulted in her first published novel while still in her early 20s.
Educated at Nova Scotia Community College, Hyde is a graduate of the college's American Sign Language/English Interpretation program.
Hyde works with deaf children on behalf of the Toronto District School Board.
She's also an editor/writer for publications serving the Deaf, including the national newsletter, The AVLIC News.
Hyde has been a resident since 1999 of Burlington, Ontario, a city neighbouring Canada's steel city, Hamilton.
She continues to live in Burlington with husband Thomas and her cat Toast.
Although Broken Dreams is Hyde's first novel, she has several others in the works and appears destined to one day take her place among Canada's great writers of books for youthful audiences.
