Ellie Brooks and her husband, Loy are retired and split their time between Surprise, Arizona and Des Moines, Iowa.  

For more than forty years, Ellie has been a genealogist and has included DNA as one of her search tools for the last six years.  

When Covid-19 struck the country, Ellie needed a meaningful project to fill her time.  She decided to use her skills to help adoptees find their birth parents.  It has been her passion since Feb 2020.  

She was amazed at the stories she discovered about her adoptee clients..  Amanda’s Journey is her first novel and a thank you to those who have allowed her the privilege of researching their DNA to determine the truth about their biological family roots.

Amanda’s Journey is a fictional  story.  None of her clients stories are represented in this book, but they are the inspiration for this book.
