Amanda Chambers was born in Baltimore, Maryland but moved to North Carolina as a teenager so she has the grit of a northerner, but the charm of a southern belle. She knew she had a love for fiction when, at an early age, she discovered her mother’s romance novels and began sneaking to read them. Turning a passion for reading into a love for the written word, Amanda’s life has revolved around writing. She began writing short stories in grade school and pursued a degree in English at East Carolina University. She then received a Masters of Arts in English from North Carolina Central University. In March 2016, Amanda decided to finish the novel she began in 2008. In August 2016 she released Ember's Flame, under the pseudonym Serendipity, and it quickly shot to the number one spot on the Amazon African American Erotica list. This book was the catalyst in Amanda creating Divine Legacy Publishing, LLC. Amanda has since released books under her given name, most notably the first book in a children's series based on her daughter, Brooke. She plans to continue writing romance under Serendipity and children's books under Amanda Chambers.
