Amanda L. V. Shalaby’s passion for all things Jane Austen was inspired by her mother and grandmother. She now writes her own historical romantic mysteries and has twice been nominated for the prestigious InD’Tale Magazine RONE Award (Reward of Novel Excellence).
When Amanda is not writing (or researching!), she enjoys spending time with her husband, Matthew, her Shih Tzu dogs, Isabella Jane and Huntley Rochester (yes, they were named after the characters from Jane Eyre), and her Persian cat, Sebastian.
