About me

Amanda is the author of BETWEEN EARTH AND SKY, a 2018 Historical Novel Review Editor’s Choice pick.

She grew up in the mountains of Colorado and sang and danced her way through 68 cities on both sides of the Atlantic with the service organization Up with People before starting college. Her love of historical fiction started early with the stories of Kenneth Thomasma, Mark Twain, and Laura Ingalls Wilder.

When she’s not writing, Amanda volunteers with her local writers’ group and chases germs as an infection control nurse. She lives in Las Vegas with her husband and their pet turtle Lenore.
