Amy Corwin

Biography

Award-winning author Amy Corwin is an insatiable reader and writer. She joined the Romance Writers of America at its inception and Mystery Writers of America after her first hardcover mystery, Whacked! was published. She writes Regencies, paranormal romances, 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.

Amy’s books have received numerous writing awards. Her first Regency, SMUGGLED ROSE, received a 4-star review by “The Romantic Times” and her second Regency, I BID ONE AMERICAN (recently republished as THE UNWANTED HEIRESS), received a perfect score of 5 from Long and Short Reviews. Her list of mysteries, romance, and paranormals has increased to over a dozen works.

Join her and discover that every good romance includes a bit of mystery!
