Presenting: Not Your Average Read
The title (and tagline of this blog) was invented by my 17 year-old sister, Rachel. My bio is as follows:
Amanda Read is a scholar who never set foot in school, a Southerner without an accent, a Christian who hasn’t been a churchgoer in sixteen years, and a college student who lives with eight younger siblings. Having been a homeschooled military child ever since she can remember, Amanda toured the nation and the world, and upon her father’s retirement from the U.S. Army, she and her family have been shaping their new land into a homestead known as Fair Hills Farm. A writer and artist, she blogs at www.amandaread.com and is the author of the historical drama screenplay, The Crusading Chemist. Amanda is majoring in History and minoring in Political Science at Jacksonville State University.

My 13 year-old sister Abigail did the photography.
I’m going to be quite busy now with summer classes and column writing, but I still hope to keep this blog exciting! I think I will keep the two writing projects very connected.
