Amanda Dick is a night-owl, coffee addict, movie buff and music lover. She loves to do DIY, believes in love at first sight, in women's intuition and in following your heart. She is rather partial to dark chocolate and believes in the power of a good vanilla latte.

What lights her fire is writing stories about real people in trying situations. She is insanely curious about how we, as human beings, react when pushed to the edge. Most of all, she enjoys writing about human behaviour - love, loss, joy, grief, friendship and the complexity of relationships in general.

After living in Scotland for five years, she has now settled back home in New Zealand, where she lives with her husband and two children.

I first read Outlander (or Cross Stitch, as it was marketed here in New Zealand) in 1997 and I loved the tit-for-tat that Jamie and Claire went through in that book. Loved that Claire was strong-willed and spoke her mind but could also be very tender. Loved that Jamie's morals were so deep-set and he was equal parts warrior and lover, and how complicated that made things sometimes. Just pure magic on the page, these two were.(less)

There are times when you stumble across something so perfect that you just can't let it go. Such is the case with the cover for novel five, In the Shadow of Satellites.

I spotted this cover online and the moment I did, I knew I had to have it.  At the time, I was still working my way through the first draft, but it just screamed at me and I bought it immediately.  Love the colours, the broody, h... Read more of this blog post »
