About Me

Hello There. I’m Amanda White.

I’m a writer/travel planner in Nashville, TN. I’ve recently found myself caught up in all things little – my husband and I are expecting our first baby! As a little girl I had always pictured my grownup self as an adventurer; a modern day nomad that would spend time in Paris, Rome, and various islands. Now I see that an adventure truly awaits – one in which I can hardly fathom the outcome!

I’m a follower of Christ, love practicing Yoga, and “am concerned with a certain way of looking at life, which was created in me by the fairy tales, but has since been meekly ratified by the mere facts.” (GK Chesterton). I’m a dreamer: a fan of anything with Disney’s stamp on it, a lover of fairy tales, myths, legends and limericks. It is this love of folk and fairy that has found me earning my Masters of Arts in English with a Literature and Writing focus.

Me and my Husband – Alice and the Hatter

Together with my scholar of a husband, we hope to do the best we can, pre and post the arrival of our baby!

White is more than a name, and much more than the spaces on a page that aren’t occupied with black letters. Those letters are easily explained away – they are the doorways to hidden worlds just waiting to be unlocked when read or spoken aloud. White is a bit more tricky. It isn’t the void, but the structure – the explanation and map to those worlds.

Now I find myself Writing in White – penciling in a new member of my small family. My husband and I are expecting our first child, and what a journey that will be!
