Author Information

Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books to leave her town life behind and head to the countryside. After working as a freelance shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer, she eventually settled down as a farmer’s wife with her own flock of sheep at Ravenseat. Happily married with nine children, she wouldn’t change a thing about her hectic but rewarding life. She and her family are the subject of Channel 5’s Our Yorkshire Farm. Amanda is also the author of the top-ten bestsellers The Yorkshire Shepherdess, A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess and Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess.
