An Evening with Amanda Fleet
Thursday 2nd June 18:30 at St Andrews
Join local author Dr Amanda Fleet for the launch of her new novel, The Wrong Kind of Clouds.
Amanda, who taught in the School of Medicine at the University of St Andrews for 18 years, left teaching to pursue a full-time career in writing, and is now using her knowledge of physiology to work out how to murder people (in her books!).
While at the University of St Andrews, Amanda worked with the College of Medicine in Blantyre, Malawi, where she learned about the plight of homeless Malawian children. In 2009 Amanda helped to set up Chimwemwe Children’s Centre in Blantyre in Malawi to support homeless children with education and training. Amanda’s first-hand experiences in the country have shaped The Wrong Kind of Clouds, whose storyline is partly set in Malawi.
The crime thriller follows the tale of Patrick Forrester, a man in deep trouble. After he is taken hostage, it is left to his ex-lover Summer Morris to track him down, with the help of an off-duty police officer. Unravelling a web of lies in a race against time to find him alive, takes Summer from discovering an affair that could bring down a government, to the dust and heat of Malawi and a lot of trouble in between.
This is an unticketed event. Please feel free to pop into the bookshop, have a glass of wine, meet Amanda, and get your copy of The Wrong Kind of Clouds signed.
