Amanda Tartt has spent a large part of her life travelling and discovering the world. She was born in England, raised in Gothenburg in Sweden, but has the whole globe as her home. She has worked where life has allowed her to stay for a while, long or short. Writing has always been her way of creating and keeping her memories.
Today, Amanda is running an ecological café in London. Among cookies, sandwiches, coffee and tea, she enjoys spending her days with her customers. When the tables sometimes are empty, she picks up her laptop and writes down thoughts and ideas that have come to her during the day.
From time to time, she also sits down at another café. With the excuse of checking out the competition, she also finds inspiration and unexpected details for her writing.
