Raised in suburban Sydney, Australia, as a kid, Amanda loved to escape the bright lights, the hustle and bustle, and visit the home of her mother’s rural roots, deep in Sydney's Blue Mountains, or historical Bathurst - the dusty cattle country from where her father's family hails. The community characters (both human and animal) and glorious landscapes and terrain never failed to capture her imagination (and still do!)
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 the wrong hands, her Google research may take some explaining!
In 2017, Amanda’s debut 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 fills her cup in the field of people and culture development. She spends her days helping people find and be the best version of themselves, and working on her passion project - The Kindness Network -
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.
