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 a period of milking cows and working as a contract shepherdess and alpaca shearer, she eventually settled down in Swaledale, North Yorkshire, where she has stayed for over twenty-five years, living and working in one of the highest and most remote places in England.
Amanda is the mother of nine children, a passionate photographer and the author of the top ten bestsellers The Yorkshire Shepherdess, A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, The Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, Tales from the Farm and Celebrating the Seasons, which was shortlisted for Non-Fiction Lifestyle Book of the Year at the 2022 British Book Awards. She has also regularly appeared on TV in shows such as The Dales, Winter Walks, New Lives in the Wild, Springtime on the Farm and Our Yorkshire Farm.
