Sworn Secret tells the story of a family torn apart when 16 year old Anna tragically dies after falling from the school roof. A year on and her family begin to discover what really happened the night she died and begin to question whether her death was an accident at all.
I thought Sworn Secret was brilliant and you can see my review here. Amanda Jennings has kindly agreed to answer a few questions.
When did you realise you wanted to become a writer?
As a child I was always writing stories and sticking the pages together to make books, but I never thought about being a writer whilst at school. Towards the end of my last year at university though, I began to write short stories for myself and fell in love – hook, line and sinker – with writing fiction. I had plenty of ideas, but in those early days never seemed to get past the first chapter. My father referred to me as ‘the world’s most prolific writer of first chapters’ in his wedding speech!
