Amanda is the author of BETWEEN EARTH AND SKY, winner of the American Library Association's 2019 Reading List Award for Best Historical Fiction, and THE UNDERTAKER'S ASSISTANT, coming from Kensington in July 2019.

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 works as an infection prevention nurse. She lives in Las Vegas with her husband and their pet turtle Lenore.
