Thousands of Mornings is a varied collection of poetry and photography. "Thousands of Mornings" is the first poem in the collection, written when Amanda Leigh was 20. The poems range from things she wrote at the age of 12 to the age of 20. Horses, family, friends, love. And then when she started experimenting a bit more with her poetry she wrote a couple of poems in dual point of view; "Broken Boys" and "Long Distance Call". The photography ranges from age 17 to age 20. If you asked Amanda to pick one theme for this collection she doesn't think that she could put her finger on it. It is a collection about love, faith, friends, family, hope, nature and dreams. It is about our Thousands of Mornings and how we should cherish them.

Amanda Leigh is a recent college graduate with a BA in English and Communications and a double minor in Psychology and Creative Writing. During college, she worked on the literary magazine and loved every minute of it. She has two poetry collections out so far with another project due out in 2014.

She lives with her mom and a kitten named Sawyer – named after one of her favorite characters on Lost. She’s engaged to a man with the same rare chronic condition as her (Nephropathic Cystinosis). Amanda enjoys reading, writing avidly in a journal, writing poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction, cooking and art – particularly photography.

She also keeps up two blogs. On one she posts all about books and writing, Girl with a Pen and a Dream, and on the other she talks about everything else (medical experiences, music, about her and her fiancé etc.), The Life of a Chronic Bibliophile.

Amanda is a bit of a chocoholic and is slightly obsessed with office supplies. She has many ideas for stories so keep an eye out for more work from her.
