About Amanda Trumpower
CLEAN FICTION FOR CHILDREN & ADULTS
Jesus, Dragons, Detectives, and Droids
My name is Amanda Trumpower (formerly Pigford). I write fiction for Jesus lovers who dig dragons, detectives, and droids.
My current children’s project is launching the first several installments of Collar Cases, a chapter book mystery series starring a canine and feline pair of investigative journalists. Check out Books for more details.
My current adult manuscript is a witty Robin Hood retelling mixed with superpowers, dragons, and mystery.
I’m a proud #TwinMom, wife, homeschooler, and lover of all things geeky–including but not limited to Star Wars, Disney Princesses, complicated board games, D&D, and video game RPGs. During my traditional career stage, I worked as a professional teen librarian.
I’m also a major Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie fangirl!
My completed education is pieced together from a variety of organizations:
- English BA (Malone University, 2014)
- Masters of Library & Information Science (Kent State, 2016)
- Jerry Jenkins’ Christian Writers Guild (2009-2013)
- Author Media‘s Book Launch Blueprint (2021)
My ongoing education includes participation in Realm Makers, where I co-lead a critique group, and Author Media’s most excellent show, the Novel Marketing Podcast.
Despite grad school, twins, and the scheduling realities of trying to write a book around toddlers…I don’t drink coffee! I am, however, obsessed with chocolate in all its forms.
If you’d like to receive an occasional email newsletter from me when I have book news, you can sign up here. I also sometimes post personal reflections, funny twin parenting stories, and behind-the-scenes writing stuff on my blog.
Until we meet, may your dice roll high, your imagination soar, and your chocolate never run out.
