Amanda Willimott

Book for an event


Amanda Willimott writes historical fiction centring the experiences of women.

She has always been captivated by history, mythology and folklore, which led to her pursuing a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in History and Anthropology with Honours in Anthropology, where she wrote her thesis on witchcraft and paganism.

Her first novel, Winter of the Wolf, is based on a real werewolf trial that took place in eastern France in the winter of 1572-1573.

When she’s not researching, writing or editing, you can find her singing popular show tunes, reading from or adding to her to-read pile of books, or trying to find gluten-free bread that tastes like real bread.

Amanda lives in Melbourne, Australia with a large, co-dependent rescue tabby named Titus.
