Amanda DeWees

Atlanta author Amanda DeWees wrote her doctoral dissertation on 19th-century vampire literature, the perfect training (although she didn't realize it at the time) for writing Victorian gothic romance novels. These include With This Curse, which won the 2015 Daphne du Maurier Award for historical mystery/suspense, and Sea of Secrets, a reimagining of Shakespeare's Hamlet that won the 2012 RONE award in mystery. Her other works include the Ash Grove Chronicles, a young adult paranormal romance series set in modern-day North Carolina.

Besides writing, Amanda's passions include theater, movies, costume design, Tom Hiddleston, and the preservation of apostrophes in their natural habitat. Visit her at www.amandadewees.com for book extras and other delightful diversions.
