Amanda Ann Smith

Screenwriter. Producer.
Dog Mom.

My name is Amanda and I'm living a double life.

I'm an extroverted introvert, an anxious optimist, and an empath who loves murder... on screen.


I write stories that probe the darkness because that's where society's monsters live, and I explore the notion that maybe they aren't monsters at all.


I'm a roller derby-playing tea sommelier who's written for Netflix, Amazon and Peacock; I have optioned six original series; and having worked with Martin Short, I can tell you what his favorite sandwich is.

(It's tuna salad.)
