In the author's own words...
I was born in 1960, an only child then and now. My father,a political scientist, passed away in October 2011. My mother, deceased since 2001, was a teacher, librarian and artist. The Catholicism comes from her side.
I grew up in a number of places - Indiana - Washington, DC - Lubbock Texas - Arlington, Virginia - DeKalb, Illinois - Lawrence, Kansas - and Knoxville, Tennessee, where we settled in 1973. I attended Knoxville Catholic High School, then the University of Tennessee where I majored in history. I received an MA in Church History from Vanderbilt University, where I wrote a thesis on the changing role of women in 19th century American Protestantism, and the ways Scripture was used to justify those changes.
I have worked as a teacher in Catholic high schools, and a Parish Director of Religious Education. I started writing for the diocesan press - the Florida Catholic - in 1988. I've written columns for Our Sunday Visitor and Catholic News Service as well at times over the past twenty years. I've been writing full time since 1999. My articles have been published in venues ranging from Our Sunday Visitor to the New York Times to Commonweal. I've written nineteen books and many pamphlets and study guides. I am a regular contributor to the Living Faith and Living Faith for Kids devotionals.
I have five children, ranging in age from 29 to 7.
For 8 1/2 happy years beginning in 2000, I was married to Michael Dubruiel, who had worked as an editor for Our Sunday Visitor for nine years, but in the summer of 2008 changed jobs to serve as Director of Evangelization for the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama.
On February 3, 2009, Michael died while running on the treadmill at the gym. My new book,Wish You Were Here: Travels Through Loss and Hope, is a memoir of those first few months, which included a sort of crazy decision to travel to Sicily.
Amy Welborn currently resides in Fort Wayne, in the state of Indiana. Amy Welborn was born in 1960.
