Amanda Holohan has been obsessed with writing since the age of six, when she penned her first poem. Following this came a deluge of poetry, comics and novels, scrawled in battered half-used workbooks, diaries, and on whatever paper she could find.
Amanda studied media and literature at Macquarie University; then she headed overseas for adventures of her own. She has lived in England, Holland and Ireland, and currently resides in the beautiful Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, with her husband and daughter. She has worked as a waitress, travel advisor, bookseller, freelance writer, book reviewer and copy subeditor.
Her first published novel, The King’s Fool, was shortlisted for an Aurealis Award and included on the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge booklist.
Her latest novel, Unwanted, has just been published by Penguin Books.
