About The Phoenix Desertsong

Amelia Phoenix Desertsong is the sole owner and operator of The Phoenix Desertsong website. At first, it was intended to house many articles, creative writing pieces, essays, and photography she’s created and collected over the decades. Since late 2023, Amelia has rededicated herself to her passion for music, particularly focusing on her analysis of song lyrics and the appreciation both classic and underrated albums.

Born and raised on the South Shore of the Boston metro in Massachusetts, Amelia’s love for the written word was ignited by her obsession with all sorts of literature. Her life’s goal is writing words while spreading love and kindness. Since she was four years old, Amelia has been busy at work creating fantastic worlds full of zany characters and epic situations. While many of her early works consist of silly mash-ups of her favorite books and cartoons of the time, they laid important groundwork for her writing today. She has several fiction projects in the works, all of which have a musical element to them.

During her college years, Amelia worked part-time in marketing. She later parlayed this work experience into a full-time position as a marketing assistant, starting in 2009. There she developed her skills in professional article writing, search engine optimization (SEO), social media management, and building both HTML and WordPress websites. In 2013, she decided to turn self-employed as a freelance writer and social media manager.

Through mid-2020, Amelia managed many blogs, social media channels, and websites for a wide variety of clients. As a side-hustle, she dabbled in buying and selling collectibles such as sports cards and trading cards such as Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, and the Pokemon Trading Card Game. She continues these pursuits as a hobby.

In July 2020, Amelia Desertsong met Thomas Slatin, master photographer and creative extraordinaire. They have since become partners both professionally and personally. She continues to leverage her online marketing expertise with her own personal website, The Phoenix Desertsong, and public relations for her partner’s website TomSlatin.com.

Amelia lives in Vermont with her wife Thomas, where they enjoy frequent road trips exploring the small town life and historic places of Northern New England. Thomas collects trains, while Amelia collects trading cards, postcards, and lots of dust on her writing archives. Together, they’ve built a significant vinyl record collection. Amelia is an extreme sci-fi nerd, Pokemon master, audiophile, photophile, voracious reader, and a rambling soul.
