Apparently Brisbane will get around 400-500mL (16-20") of rain tomorrow today alone - before the storm continues on its merry way down the coast, bringing even more rain for everyone. Robbie tried to convince Nelle that we're all going to spiral away in the winds to a land called Oz, ...

Introduction
Hi, I'm Amanda. I'm a writer and a scientist, but I don't always write about science. I write poetry, nonfiction, flash fiction, and I read as much as possible. 

I had cancer at 32, and now I study why animals die. Makes sense, right? I'm always seeking balance in my world, and it's not always easy ... but life's a work in progress, for sure. 

You can find me on my website and on my sustainability blog Easy Peasy Organic. Head on over, bring tea :) I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I'm a local travel expert at Afar, and I sell my photography at Society 6.

See you soon!
