6307-March 15, 2012
The Malone University Writers Series will wind up the 2011-2012 season with with local mystery writer – and Malone University alumna – Amanda Flower, Thursday, March 22 at 4:30 p.m. in the Everett Cattell Library. The program is free and open to the public.
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 a 2010 Agatha Award Nominee for Best First Novel and the first in a series featuring amateur sleuth India Hayes. She followed it with Murder in a Basket (February, 2012), and in July 2012, Amanda will debut her second mystery series, the Appleseed Creek Mystery Series, which is set in Ohio's Amish country – beginning with A Plain Death. In addition to being a mystery author, Amanda is an academic librarian for a small college near Cleveland. Visit her online at: amandaflower.com.
