Amanda Prowse

Amanda Prowse is one of the UK’s most prolific and loved storytellers whose thirty-one novels and two non-fiction books have been translated into dozens of languages and sold over 8 million copies around the world. Not bad considering her first book was published in 2013!

A passionate reader since her first visit to the local library aged 6, Amanda would read everything and anything and – armed with her precious library ticket – would spend hours reading loved Enid Blyton, Anna Sewell, Judi Blume, Nina Bawden while scribbling short stories of her own. As time passed, she moved onto the more adult delights of Lace, The Thorn Birds and A Woman of Substance; gritty, emotional stories that would inform her writing.

Seeing her plots like movies in her mind, Amanda is compelled to get her stories down on paper and often writes for up to sixteen hours a day.  The results of her efforts have produced heartfelt human stories that have made her one of the most successful female writers of contemporary fiction today.

A powerful storyteller and a master of the addictive plot, Amanda’s rich imagination and prolific writing talent has seen her win the Sainsbury’s eBook of the year award while ‘Will You Remember Me?’ was a Daily Mail book of the year.  Two of her books, ‘Perfect Daughter’ and ‘The Boy Between’ have been selected as World Book Night titles, accomplishments which contributed to her being inducted into the Amazon Hall of Fame.

A regular interviewee on TV and radio, Amanda writes for a wide variety of newspaper and magazines in addition to being an ambassador for ‘The Reading Agency’, a wonderful organisation that promotes libraries and adult literacy.

Amanda lives in the West Country with her husband, sons and two French bulldogs, Dottie and Beau.
