Mandy Robotham
Mandy Robotham is a Canadian, USA, US and Australian Kindle 100 bestseller, Globe and Mail bestselling author.

Mandy had been dreaming of writing a novel since she was nine years old, after reading “Harriet the Spy” and she carried her notebook all around the school’s playground, attempting to look interesting. She found herself wanting to be the writer, more than the spy. While wandering around with the notebook, she was attempting to write a book, which ended up always having the same plot as “Harriet”.

She was waylaid, however, with journalism and kids, which took her to midwifery, which took her even further away from her keyboard for twenty years. Once more, she is immersed in the world of words, having completed her MA in Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes University.

Now she writes about death, birth, and anything else in between. That’s when she isn’t called out to birth women in the small hours.

Even though she was into her fifties when she achieved it, she never lost sight of her dream, of holding a book she had written in her hand. It was an extremely good day when it finally happened, and she admits to smelling the pages when she handled that first copy.

Mandy gets inspiration from anywhere, since she is a nosy person. She sits on the Tube and wonders about what the people around her do, where they live, and if they have any secrets.

When writing something, she begins a new notebook for each planned book, and hand writes all her ideas, notes, character names, etc. It is her constant companion for when she begins to to write on the keyboard. She knows she’s ready to write when she begins thinking about conversations and scenes with her characters, and then has to stop herself from splurging on screen.

Since she works four days a week, her writing time is precious. If the words aren’t coming on one text, she switches to another for that period. O just work on something else, a monologue or some short story. Anything she can in order to ensure the wheels stay oiled.

During her spare time away from babies and writing, she is a keen gym-goer, knits what her kids call ‘odd things’ (placentas too), and she prides herself on being Jack Savoretti’s number one fan.

Mandy finds she is in heaven while in a cafe with some good coffee beside her, with a buzz of different people as a cushion. She reads each night tucked underneath her duvet, particularly cozy and nice during winter.

The 1960s is her favorite decade in fashion. It is a decade that she would’ve loved to have been a young woman during. The shapes and the colors as well as the total abandon of anything conservative. Nothing was out of bounds. Among her heroes is Mary Quant.

She’s always had an inkling to work in a mortuary, because she is fascinated with the processes that occur after life. It is lucky that she isn’t squeamish.

She draws the most inspiration from Jane Austen, who was so far ahead of her time, a feisty brain during a tough time for all women.

Mandy’s debut novel, called “A Woman of War”, was released in the year 2018. Her work is from the inspirational and historical genres.
