Amanda Morrow is an Illustrator born and raised in Southern California. From the time she could pick up a crayon, Amanda was always creating. With generations of female artists in Amanda’s family tree, she knew that art was always her destiny. Amanda loves stories with a fairytale theme, stories that include strong female heroines, diverse characters, and most importantly, stories that encourage young people to follow their dreams.
Amanda especially enjoys the aspect of character design - creating original characters that resonate with impressionable young children. Amanda's goal is to have a lifetime career creating characters that inspire, spark imagination, and show children that just like characters in the book, they can overcome challenges and obstacles and become the person they were meant to be.
When she is not creating, she enjoys the beach and water of all kinds, checking out the latest scary movie (Scream is one of her favorites), and playing The Sims. Confirmed coffee-oholic, Amanda enjoys many ventures to local coffee houses to try out the latest trends in caffeine consumption as well as trying to recreate some of them at home. Of course, all these activities are made better by doing them with her sister and best friend.
