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 adult services librarian for a public library near Cleveland. She also writes mysteries as USA Today bestselling author Isabella Alan.

I am thrilled to announce that through the Prose and Cons Giveback we raised $5,043 for the Landing Food Pantry in Akron, Ohio. 4,852 copies of the novel sold before 12.20.16, and as promised, I made a $1 donation to the Landing for every copy sold before that date. The additional $191 was made up from direct donations from the Learned Owl and Goodyear Heights Baptist Church. Thank you so much...
