Amanda Jennings – Thriller writer talks ideas of isolation

Amanda Jennings has just published her 5th novel, ‘The Storm’, which is set in a lonely, isolated Cornish fishing village. It’s about Hannah who seems to have the perfect marriage, but is desperately controlled by her husband, Nathan, behind closed doors, and how its linked to a tragic storm of years before.

Since her debut, ‘Sworn Secret’, she regularly tops the Kindle bestselling chart. Her novels all focus on a haunting aspect of loneliness, of being withdrawn, and of secrets which affect families. We talk about why she keeps coming back to these themes, how she works through ideas, and her lack of thorough planning: she’s a proper pantser.

She has been involved in the WoMentoring Project, which offers mentoring support for talented female writers with women who work in the literary world, and run writers’ workshops.
