Award-winning author Amy Corwin joined the Romance Writers of America as a charter member and has recently joined Mystery Writers of America. She has retired from a career as an enterprise computer systems administratorto write full time. She writes Regencies, paranormals, and mysteries, although to be truthful, most of her books include a bit of murder and mayhem since she discovered that killing off at least one character is a highly effective way to make the remaining ones toe the plot line.
Her first book, Smuggled Rose, came out in 2007. Her second book, I Bid One American, was originally published May 2008 with the paperback version in November, 2008 and has since been republished in 2013. She followed this with a novella, Christmas Mishaps, in 2008, and a short story, Outrageous Behavior, in 2009. She is currently working on several mysteries.
Amy lives out in the country, way out in the country, and deeply regrets not habitually carrying a camera. Without photographic evidence, no one will believe she nearly ran over a 20 lb barracuda lying in the middle of her road; saw a hot-air balloon land in her front yard; and found a dairy cow thoughtfully trimming the grass at her mailbox. She wishes she’d also had a rope when she came across the cow because she could have used the cow poo for her Old Garden roses, which currently number well over 100.
Her wildlife biologist husband, a chocolate lab, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, and two cats enjoy the temperate climate on thirty acres near the coast of North Carolina.
