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.
