Amanda Ashby was born in Australia but now lives in New Zealand. She has a degree in English and Journalism from the University of Queensland and is married with two children. She’s written 25 books and counting.
Her debut book was nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice award, and her first young adult book was listed by the New York Public Libraryʼs Stuff for the Teen Age. Because she’s mysterious she also writes middle grade books under the name, Catherine Holt and co-writes domestic thrillers with her close friend, Sally Rigby.
She owns far too many vintage tablecloths and likes to delight her family by constantly rearranging the furniture.
