A former city girl, Amanda has morphed into a homeschooling mom to three boys on a small ranch in rural Texas. When she’s not busy tending her pecan orchard or garden, she can be found chasing the chickens. As if the trials and adventures of country living were not enough to tame her imagination, she spends her rare free time writing picture books and middle grade fiction.
