About Me

Smitten For Fiction was launched in 2015 as a creative space for me to share my poems, short stories, and book reviews, in hopes to make your day a little brighter and help you find your next great read. If you love to chat about characters, plot, stories, novels, or are looking to escape your busy life then this is the place for you. Use the category tags to find book reviews, book tags, read my writing, find a book from a particular region, or particular genre.

Amanda December 2016

My name is Amanda Hartwick, and I was inspired to start this blog when I realized how much I missed writing and reading. Life had taken over, and I wasn’t making time to do the things I once loved.

I was born and raised in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada – and yes, I have a “Newfie” accent once you get me goin’ 😉 I moved to Ontario after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts, Major in Sociology/Social & Cultural Anthropology, Minor in History. I’m now married with two kids, and a cat named Bruce Wayne. Educational Assistant by day, aspiring author by night.

Thanks for stopping by. Leave some comments, I will respond 🙂 Subscribe/follow, and connect with me:




Happy Reading!
