AS2015 croppedHello, I’m Amanda Saint – author of novels, short stories, and feature articles.

My debut novel, As If I Were A River, is out now and I’m just writing my next one, which has a working title of All Be Forgotten.

When I’m not writing fiction I write features for magazines and run my creative writing business, Retreat West.

Nomadic by nature, I’ve been roaming the world with my husband, John, for the past 16 years and we’ve travelled in Europe, Asia and Australia and lived in New Zealand, Ireland, on a canal narrowboat and all over the UK. For now, I’m back in my hometown of Reading.

Before I was a full-time writer I worked in various jobs as a marketing manager, communications consultant, call centre slave, waitress, pie heater, magazine editor, shop assistant, and more. But now it’s all about the words.
