Amanda Moeckel holds an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts. She is the author-illustrator of Khalida and the Most Beautiful Song (Page Street Kids, 2018). 

Her first word was “light,” and her art shows her enduring obsession with it. Her stories for children are uplifting and soulful, with touches of magic. Her work has been featured on The Children’s Book PodcastSeven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, and other popular kidlit blogs.

Amanda grew up near an old theme park in Massachusetts and now lives in NYC with her husband, son Augustine, and their three senior dogs.


She is represented by Charlotte Wenger of Prospect Agency.
