Browning joins Daily News staff

Greensburg — Amanda Browning, of the Westport area, recently joined the Greensburg Daily News crew as its newest staff writer. Browning is an independent author of fiction and said she is excited to branch out into nonfiction work.

She has been a resident of the area for many years and is a 2003 graduate of South Decatur High School. Browning has been an avid reader and lover of the written word her entire life, but only recently turned that love into a career.

Browning and her husband of nine years have three young children and she hopes to pass her love of reading on to them. In her spare time, Browning enjoys singing and dancing with her children, often having impromptu dance parties. She frequently spends time outside with all her children, searching for the "fairy portal" hidden in the woods behind her house and taking nature walks.

She also crafts custom bedtime stories for her children, featuring them as characters. When she isn’t writing, Browning tries to spend as much time with her family as possible.

After having lived through the tragedy of losing a child, Browning is passionate about helping others deal with grief. She works closely with several self-harm and suicide prevention groups, hoping to keep others from feeling alone when it matters most. She firmly believes that simply knowing someone really cares can make a big difference and she seeks to provide that for others. One of her children is autistic and she is also active with autism support groups and raising awareness.

Browning said she is looking forward to meeting new people and reporting on local stories during her work with the paper. She will continue writing her fiction novels in her spare time, as she said she can’t imagine a life where she isn’t writing. Browning is optimistic about her new career choice and plans to continue writing professionally for many years to come.
