Amanda Hocking stopped by the studio to talk about a whole bunch of things, including her guilty pleasure book, growing up in Blooming Prairie / Austin, and the TV show mashup she'd love to see (hint: half of it is Alf!)...

On Amanda Hocking's website you can learn all about her. For example, besides writing, what jobs  has she had?

I worked full-time in group homes for people with disabilities for the past five and a half years, so the majority of my writing was done then. In high school and right out of high school, I worked as a dishwasher, and then I went to work at the group home. I always wrote in my spare time, but I had to pay the bills, so I had to keep my day job. Until August 2010. That’s the first time I made enough money off my writing that I didn’t need to work anymore, so I’ve been writing full-time since then.

In this interview, you'll learn different kind of stuff, including the classic TV mashup she'd like to see and how she knew me when she was in 6th Grade and i had no idea!
