Amanda James (aka Mandy) was born in Sheffield and now lives in Cornwall with her husband and a cat. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, singing, and spending lots of time with her grandchildren. She also admits to spending far too much time chatting on Twitter and Facebook! Amanda feels most at home walking on the beach and making plots up in her head. A fair amount of these have made it onto paper, and been turned into books.

Amanda James hasn't written any blog posts yet.

This book is quite simply epic! It should be made into a film, as the writing is so beautifully visual and presses all the emotional buttons. I was transported to 1940s Sark, Cornwall and Paris by Sebastian's story. Sebastian, a doctor, and gentle ga ...more

Quotes by Amanda James  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I mean, can you tell me why we don't have a section in bookshops called men's fiction?”
Amanda James, The Calico Cat

“Being different was good, I liked it and I wouldn't change myself for anyone. Not ever.”
Amanda James, The Calico Cat

“Most people actively try to bury their differences and become like everyone else for fear of ridicule. They want to belong. They want to 'fit in'. They don't like to be singled out, have their differences scrutinised, put on microscope slides or in Petri dishes and poked by society. I on the other hand, rejoice in it. I don't want to belong if it means having to wrestle your individuality into a small space, paint it grey and make it... normal.”
Amanda James, The Calico Cat
