About this author

Amanda Flower, an Agatha-nominated mystery author, started her writing career in elementary school when she read a story she wrote to her sixth grade class and had the class in stitches with her description of being stuck on the top of a Ferris wheel. She knew at that moment she’d found her calling of making people laugh with her words. Her debut mystery, Maid of Murder, was an Agatha Award Nominee for Best First Novel. Amanda is an academic librarian for a small college near Cleveland. She also writes mysteries as Isabella Alan.

Last week, I was in Florida on a writing retreat. It was a great time spent on thP1070712e west coast with writing friends. Lots of wonderful things happened while I was there: I started a new project, I spent time with my super agent/friend, and I saw a baby dolphin off the coast of Sanibel Island.
