About the Author
Amanda L. V. Shalaby grew up in a small town just outside of New York City and always wanted to be a writer. At age 14, she wrote her first novel in longhand using a 5-subject, college-ruled notebook and she hasn’t stopped since. Her love of stories was inspired by her mother and grandmother – both voracious readers who taught her the value of a library card. When not doing research or baking carrot cake, Amanda writes historical mysteries of her own while consuming entirely too much coffee. She lives with her husband, Matthew, whom she married in 2005, and is a proud dog, cat, and bunny mom.
Amanda’s novels Rhianna and Audra were published by Crimson Romance, a former division of F&W Media. Bleddyn Hall, a gothic Victorian mystery set in both London and Yorkshire, was published by Soul Mate Publishing.
