Bestselling local author Amanda Brook began developing her writing when her young son was diagnosed with cancer. When Nathan died in 2006 at just three years old, Amanda was determined that his legacy would be one of inspiration not devastation. Her debut novel Yesterday’s Sun was inspired by her experiences of motherhood and her understanding of how much a mother would be willing to sacrifice for the life of her child. Amanda has since published eight novels and will talk about her latest title Don’t turn around at Stockbridge Library
