Born and bred in London, Amanda trained professionally as an actress and is now a humorously perceptive chick/mummy-lit writer.
A voracious reader of the genre herself, she began focusing on her writing soon after her son developed school phobia age 11 and she had to physically remain in the background at his school for nearly three years until he regained his confidence. Much reading, observing and writing ensued from her confined quarters in the school car park.
The resulting debut novel, 'Diary of a Mummy Misfit', was a tongue-in-cheek look at the easily recognised types of self-obsessed mums you can find at prep school gates the world over - "the Meemies" - and follows the journey of Libby, an ordinary mum who discovers the chasm between the Haves and the Have-nots. 'The Darker Side of Mummy Misfit' followed and in 2012 she ventured into romcoms. Her latest novel, 'The All or Nothing Girl', is out now.
Amanda has also written two Christmas novellas, 'Christmas Deliverance' (2012) and 'Cinderella's Buttons' (2013).
