Long Bio

Amanda Eyre Ward is the critically acclaimed author of six books, including The Same Sky, a beautiful and heartrending novel about motherhood, resilience, and faith. Amanda spent a year visiting shelters in Texas and California, meeting immigrant children and hearing their stories. The Same Sky is a ripped-from-the-headlines story of two families on both sides of the American border.

Amanda's work has garnered many accolades, including the Violet Crown Book Award (Sleep Toward Heaven), a Target Bookmarked Pick (How to Be Lost and The Same Sky), and a Kirkus Best Book Pick (Close Your Eyes). 

After spending time in Maine, Cape Cod and New Orleans, Amanda and her family settled in Texas, where she currently lives.
