Amanda Brooke Talks About The Tragedy That Inspired Her To Write

I only started writing about ten years ago when my young son was diagnosed with leukaemia. When Nathan was ill and after he died, writing gave me a way of channelling my emotions and making sense of my grief. At first I wrote about my experiences but eventually I began to write fiction and my first novel, Yesterday’s Sun was published in 2012 and was selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club. I’m both amazed and proud of my achievements, not least because I consider my writing career as Nathan’s legacy.
