Amanda was training to be a journalist when circumstances changed her life. She became a tennis coach at the age of thirty and has worked in that profession ever since. Her roles have spanned across many centres and she worked for three years at the Lawn Tennis Association. In 2014 she was awarded the title of Aegon Children's Tennis Coach of the Year.
Throughout her career, Amanda has never lost her passion for writing. Now, she devotes more time to creating fantasy worlds from her home in Wales. The rest of her life revolves around her husband, two children and four grandchildren.
