Amanda Barratt

ECPA bestselling author Amanda Barratt fell in love with writing in grade school when she wrote her first story--a spinoff of Jane Eyre. Now, Amanda writes romantic, historical novels and novellas, penning stories of beauty and brokenness, set against the backdrop of bygone eras not so very different from our own. Her novel My Dearest Dietrich: A Novel of Bonhoeffer's Lost Love, releases from Kregel Publications in June 2019.

She's also the author of My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls, New York: Adele's Journey, as well as seven novellas with Barbour Publishing. Two of her novellas have been finalists in the FHL Reader's Choice Awards.

Amanda lives in the woods of Michigan with her fabulous family, where she can be found reading way too many books, obsessing over her favorite BBC dramas, dreaming up her next novel, and trying to figure out a way to get on the first possible flight to England.
