Amanda Craig was born in South Africa, but left as a baby, following the Sharpeville massacre. She grew up in Italy, where her parents worked for the UN, and became an award-winning journalist and the author of eight novels, twice long-listed for the Women's Prize for fiction with Hearts and Minds and The Golden Rule. Praised by Bernadine Evaristo as a State of the Nation novelist and "such a skillful story-teller who vividly dramatises our lives with wit, wisdom and compassion", she has just finished her ninth novel, The Three Graces, involving illegal migration into Italy, for publication next June.

Terms and conditions: By bidding in this auction you are aware that the author has full artistic licence over how and for what type of character they use the given name. You understand that the author retains the right to choose which future novel your character will appear in.
