About Amanda Morgan

In her character driven inspirational series, LEGENDS OF THE SANCTUARY TREE, archaeologist Amanda Morgan uses family stories and local legends to weave a saga of ordinary people; of their struggles and triumphs; of making choices and accepting the results. She endows her heroes with no more attributes than the desire to do right and a willingness to grow then she uses homespun humor to demonstrate that growth.
Childhood memories of a campfire story told by her father prompted the idea of using a tree as a place of Sanctuary—“some place to stash this burden, somewhere to rest”—and each novel has situations in which characters are helped by a tree—an angel wearing camouflage.
Amanda’s writing reflects the parable-like stories with which she was raised. If you are looking for words of wisdom you will find them couched with a little bit of humor in the mysteries, the benevolence, and the tears. You won’t find them by searching for can’ts or shoulds. And if you happen to miss them, that’s okay. These are still charming stories—tales about strong women who refuse to see themselves as victim.
