Amanda Brookfield was born in 1960 and educated at University College Oxford. Her passion for literature was fired by a sixth form love of E. M. Forster’s Howard’s End; she went on to do an optional thesis on Forster’s work at Oxford. She began her career in advertising and then worked as a freelance journalist in Argentina. Drawing on her own experience of being part of a large, close family, her novels tap into the tangled web of emotions, insecurities and passions familiar to us all. Emotionally intelligent, with a voice that is both poignant and perceptive, Amanda is a writer of contemporary fiction of the highest calibre.
