If you’re looking for a dictionary definition of “prolific author,” look no further than USA Today best-selling author Amanda Flower. Like many writers, Amanda has been weaving tales since she was a child, but she recently celebrated ten years as a published author.
Books have always been a major part of Amanda’s life. She began her career as a college librarian. Now she writes full time—and no wonder. Since her very first book was hit the shelves, Amanda has published no fewer than thirty-seven cozy mysteries (do the math!) in a number of series with several publishers. In 2015, Amanda won an Agatha Award for Best Children’s/YA novel with Andi Unstoppable, the third in the Andi Boggs series. Her books are known for their humor, quirky characters, and down-to-earth settings, many of which are taken from Amanda’s own life and experience with the Ohio Amish community.
Her most recent books include Courting Can Be Killer (from An Amish Matchmaker series); Candy Cane Crime (from the Amish Candy Shop mysteries); and Dead-End Detective (the Piper & Porter Mysteries). Coming in 2021 is Farm to Trouble, the first in the Farm to Table Mysteries.
Amanda got married this past October. Currently she and her husband are building a house on their farm. They have two cats, Cheeps and Tummy. In her spare time, Amanda loves to make beaded jewelry, which she sells in her Etsy shop.
