Amanda Hale is currently seeking a producer/director for her screenplay adaptation of Sounding the Blood – 1915 Queen Charlotte Islands whaling station: A family is shattered by the death of a baby son. Unable to accept their loss, the parents neglect their daughters until the rebellion of 15-year-old Bella, in love with a Japanese boy, shocks and ultimately reunites the family.


In October 2010 Amanda was a participant at a conference on Transgressive Writing at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. The participants’ essays were published in the academic journal Brno Studies in English, Vol.36, No.2, 2010, Transgressive (Auto)Biography as Genre and Method. Amanda’s essay, Imagining a Geometry of the Soul, can be read on this webpage, in the Creative Non-Fiction section of POEMS AND STORIES.
