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. Amanda’s previously published works, Rhianna and Audra, both were nominated for the prestigious InD’Tale Magazine RONE Award. Her new novel, Bleddyn Hall, was recently contracted by Soul Mate Publishing.
When Amanda is not writing, 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.
