Amanda Knight - Head shot 2.jpg


For as long as she can remember, award winning author Amanda Knight has been intrigued by the factors that motivate human behaviour, particularly crime. (In fact, in the wrong hands, her Google research may take some explaining!) 

In 2017, Amanda’s debut romantic suspense novel Situation Critical won her the Australian Romance Readers Association Best New Author award, and Australian AusRom Today Best New Romance Author award. 

When she's not writing about psychopaths, soldiers and police officers, or love and loss in small town communities, Amanda, a certified life coach, spends her days helping people find and be the best version of themselves. With over twenty years experience in the field of People and Culture, Amanda is dedicated to growing people, enabling potential and maximising performance (and loves to bring that knowledge full circle when creating her characters!)

Amanda lives in a beautiful beachside suburb in Sydney with her husband, three children, a cranky (but still loveable) cat and the most gorgeous golden retriever dog that ever lived.
