About Amy Welborn

Writer and author Amy Welborn has been on a journey of exploration since childhood. Ms. Welborn’s formative years were shaped by frequent travel before finally settling in Birmingham, Alabama, where she resides today. Raised a Christian in the Roman Catholic tradition, Amy Welborn has taken from her faith a concern for the human struggle toward meaning and purpose.

After completing her graduate education in church history at Vanderbilt, Amy Welborn continued the legacy of her late mother by venturing into teaching. It was during this time that Ms. Welborn began her writing career. Producing news articles for the diocesan “Florida Catholic” gave her an anchorage in the publishing world, leading to a steady stream of similar roles with increasing responsibility. In fact, Amy Welborn has been doing what she loves full-time since 1999. Her work has been published in journals ranging from Catholic News Services’ “Our Sunday Visitor” to the New York Times. A prolific author, she has written nineteen well-received books, along with numerous other materials, and is a regular contributor of children’s devotionals.

With her husband’s tragic passing in 2009, Amy Welborn’s desire to help others cope with similar profound loss became a driving force in her life. To help make sense of this death, she and several of her children made a trek to Sicily. This experience resulted in her most recent title, “Wish You Were Here” (Random House), released on February 7, 2012. Another in Ms. Welborn’s line of critically acclaimed books, “Wish You Were Here” is a study of hope and love overcoming tragedy and restoring the human heart and soul. In it, Amy Welborn describes how these principles can fill the void left by loss. It is a well-told and intensely personal story about the human journey through loss and healing.

Pro-active in her beliefs, Ms. Welborn is an avid pro-life supporter affiliated with the Her Choice Pregnancy Center of Birmingham. When she has leisure time, Ms. Welborn enjoys reading and traveling.
