At some point during her life, Amanda and her best friends Elizabeth, Renee, and Tammi formed a book club where they would have weekly get-togethers and share their opinions about authors and novels. Unaware that Tammi was being possessed by a demon, Renee and her friends unknowingly traded their souls to "Tammi" for power. Later, after getting involved with a married man named Paul Dutton, Amanda was devastated after Paul unexpectedly called off the affair, which caused Amanda to use her knowledge and powers against Paul and his wife. Though she succeeded in killing Janet, hunters Sam and Dean Winchester were able to save Paul. After attracting too much attention to herself, Amanda was later killed by Tammi who was in reality possessed by Astaroth. Her soul went to Hell.
