AMANDA MORRIS was born in New York and moved to Brazil when she was four years old. From an early age, her love of words and reading assured she remained bilingual and equally fluent in both Portuguese and English.
Still in Brazil, she attended Law School and decided to be both an attorney and a Law Professor. To fully pursue an academic career, she also got a Masters degree and a PhD in Law from Universidade de São Paulo - USP. She is a published author of legal books.
However, after nearly two decades working with law in several capacities, Amanda felt the pull of her earliest passion: words. She has been working as a translator for the past two years, mostly of legal documents. She also enjoys the challenge and beauty of literary translation.
