Amanda Sun, also known as Sun-sama by her fans, is a YA author, proud Nerdfighter (an online group founded by the VlogBrothers), and a wife/mother of two children. She was born in Deep River, Canada, a very small town without traffic lights or buses, and where stranger safety was comprised of what to do if you see a bear—or skunk. She started reading fantasy novels at 4 and writing as soon as she could hold a pencil. She hopes that her work has improved since then.

​In university she took English, Linguistics, and Asian History, before settling into Archaeology, because she loved learning about the cultures and stories of ancient people. However, she didn't actually become an archaeologist, as she has an intense fear of spiders. Instead, she prefers unearthing fascinating stories in the safety of her living room.

​The Paper Gods trilogy is inspired by her time living in Osaka and travelling throughout Japan (as well as watching far too many J-Dramas, she says). She currently lives in Toronto with her husband and daughter. When she's not writing, she is devouring YA books, knitting "nerdy" things like Companion Cubes and Triforce mitts, and making elaborate cosplays for anime cons.

With the upcoming conclusion to the Paper Gods trilogy, Amanda Sun has revealed that she will be releasing a YA (young adult) fantasy series in May 2016. Nothing substantial is now at the moment, so check back soon for more info!
