Amanda Brooke



The author is a single mum in her forties who lives in Liverpool with her teenage daughter Jessica. She has a degree in Computer Studies and an established career in local government although up until recent years, her writing skills were mainly concentrated on producing corporate documents. It was only when her young son was diagnosed with cancer that Amanda began to develop her writing, recording her family's journey in a journal and through poetry. When Nathan died in 2006 at just three years old, Amanda was determined that his legacy would be one of inspiration not devastation.

The Second Child (2018)
Caroline Bond
"I stayed up long into the night to finish The Second Child...a carefully crafted and utterly compelling tale of lost opportunity and impossible choices."
