Honestly, it depends on who you ask. To some, I'm a consultant working in the video game industry. To others, I'm three raccoons in a trench-coat. To my kids, I'm mama. As for the Actual Reality version of me, I'm Amanda Farough.
I've been writing professionally for over twelve years, mostly about video games. Heck, I've been known to write about everything from pop culture to business.
