Author Showcase


Amanda has always loved reading and writing. It wasn't until recently, though that she had the resources to transform the bedtime stories she shared with her kids into a book.

The Traveler's Trunk series is a time-travel adventure featuring three cousins, who in reality are named for two of Amanda's children and the son of a very dear friend. Pirates Treasure, the first book in the series, was released in August 2009, and Amanda plans to launch the next book in late summer 2010. With the help of her kids, they've put together ten adventures for the series.

In addition to being a Mom and author, Amanda is the founder of Traveler's Trunk Publishing. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

Amanda, who served in the United States Air Force, currently lives with her husband and three children in Cedar Springs, Michigan.
