Amanda Owen grew up in Huddersfield but was inspired by the James Herriot books, amongst others, to work in farming. After learning her craft as a freelance shepherdess, cow milker and alpaca shearer, she settled down as a farmer's wife with her own flock of sheep at Ravenseat. Happily married with eight children, she wouldn't change a thing about her hectic but rewarding life. Voted Yorkshirewoman of the Year by the Dalesman magazine, she is the author of the top ten bestseller The Yorkshire Shepherdess and A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess.
