About Me:

From her "About" page:

Amanda Christine Read is the eldest of nine children and was homeschooled until she began attending a state university. Because her father was a Russian linguist and foreign area officer in the U.S. Army, she has lived in Europe, Central Asia and all over the United States. She currently resides in Alabama, where her father retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.

At the age of 13, she started a homeschool e-newsletter. Her first news article was about the debacle at the Alabama Supreme Court over the Ten Commandments monument, which ended up ousting the popularly elected Chief Justice Roy S. Moore. Miss Read was also intrigued by the events of the War on Terror, and she has been writing about politics ever since.

In 2004, her mother discovered the fascinating history of Dr. Harvey W. Wiley and the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906. After years of researching and writing, Amanda completed a full length historical drama screenplay titled The Crusading Chemist in March 2008 and completed a revision of it in 2009.

Miss Read lives with her family on a small farm and is majoring in History and minoring in Political Science in college, as well as completing various literary projects.


Amanda Read is a political and current events columnist for The Washington Times Communities. She is also a worldview columnist for Latitude 821 and has served as a contributing writer to The Girlhood Home Companion Magazine. Amanda Read is a member of and The Student Free Press Association.

Miss Read is also an independent contractor for the pro-life organization Live Action.
