About Amy 2016-10-26T01:38:41+00:00

Author of the critically acclaimed Marjorie McClelland Mysteries, Amy Patricia Meade is a native of Long Island, NY where she cut her teeth on classic films and books featuring Nancy Drew and Encyclopedia Brown.

Later in her youth, she’d come to admire the works of Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, leading her to pursue a Bachelor Degree in English as well as Business.

After stints as an Operations Manager for a document imaging company and a freelance technical writer, Amy left the bright lights of New York city and headed north to pursue her creative writing career amidst the idyllic beauty of Vermont’s Green Mountains.

Now residing in Virginia, Amy spends her time writing mysteries with a humorous or historical bent.  When not writing – which is rare these days – Amy enjoys traveling, testing out new recipes, classic films (still!) and wishing for Spring.

Amy is a member of Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime.
