Amanda Trumpower

Writer for Jesus lovers who dig dragons, detectives, and droids.

Jesus Lovers

I’m a second generation homeschooler, #TwinMom, and follower of Christ. I write primarily for homeschool families, secondarily for general Christian families. All of my books are 100% clean: no swearing, excessive violence, or sex. The stories are written from a biblical worldview, but not all the characters living in them share this belief. You’ll see consequences for all kinds of choices…good, bad, and otherwise. That’s the power of story.


SEEKER, RANGER, SPY is my witty adult fantasy Robin Hood retelling crossed with X-men style superpowers. It also has dragons! The manuscript is in consideration for publication.


Illustrated chapter books for readers 7-11 who love mysteries, animals, and silly hijinks.
