Michigan and New York native Amanda Adams began her quest to become an author through journaling and writing poetry as a method of catharsis during her college years. Amanda earned degrees in Information Systems and Management Science, as well as an MBA and worked as an Information Technology Executive and Management Consultant for multiple Fortune 100 companies.
She spent two decades crafting a back story for her debut, The Sangrita Club, the first in a series of stories about compelling female corporate executives. Currently she lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband and daughter where she’s active in community activities and continues to write.
Four New York City female corporate executives: Vanessa, Anne, Monica, and Maria come from differing backgrounds, racially, culturally and socioeconomically, and struggle with varying issues of abandonment, lovelornness, sexual abuse, and addictions. At first glance, it appears as though they have nothing in common, however as members of "The Sangrita Club," these women discover that they are all seeking the same thing, a way to escape. The Sangrita Club is a story of how these women forge a bond in the face of adversities, which helps them find a way up, out, through, around, and over the stumbling blocks in their lives and transform them into stepping-stones. By breaking through each other’s facades, they discover the illuminating value that lies within their sisterhood, which helps them heal from the symptoms of their past secrets.
