Amy Corwin is a charter member of the Romance Writers of America and recently joined Mystery Writers of America. She has been writing for the last ten years and managing a career as an enterprise systems administrator in the computer industry. She writes Regencies/historicals, mysteries, and contemporary paranormals. 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.
Amy’s books include the two Regency romances, SMUGGLED ROSE, and LOVE, THE CRITIC; three Regency romantic mysteries, I BID ONE AMERICAN, THE BRICKLAYER’S HELPER, and THE NECKLACE; and her first paranormal, VAMPIRE PROTECTOR.

And I also have a paranormal suspense, Time, in the editing stage, while I'm plotting out another paranormal suspense, Smoke.

Then it's on to another Second Sons Inquiry Agency Regency mystery, Voyage with Death, before I swing around to another Archer family book. Lots to do. :)(less)

If I waited for inspiration, I'd rarely write. :)
I try to write five days a week, whether I'm inspired or not. If I can't get into the groove, I find that editing the previous day's work gets my mind working so that I can do my writing for the day.

I should have added that as advice to aspiring authors: don't wait for inspiration, make yourself inspired by writing. You'll find that the discipline of writing on a regular schedule actually makes you more creative and more inspired, than just waiting around for some spark of creativity to light.(less)

While this post has absolutely nothing to do with my writing, it is something that means a lot to me. I've been watching the nesting efforts of Green Herons at a pond next to our house for almost two months now, and although I have no scientific credentials whatsoever and am by no means an authority or even a pretender to any kind of knowledge of any kind, I have wanted to document some of my o...

Beth Hi Amy,
Thanks for befriending this fellow mystery author on Goodreads!


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Amy and thanks for adding me. Isn't this a great website? If you have the time, I'd love for you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads. We’ve known each other for over 30 years. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too!
