What is your latest release and what genre is it? My latest book, The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor, is being released today, April 28, 2015. It is a novel of romantic suspense.
Quick description: Peppernell Manor, an antebellum plantation on the banks of the Ashley River near Charleston, South Carolina, has seen better days. But when its owner hires restoration specialist Carleigh Warner to oversee its return to grandeur, disagreements over the property’s future threaten to tear the Peppernell family apart. Carleigh is swept unwittingly into a whorl of secrets and betrayals that she must face in order to protect her future and that of her young daughter.
After deciding that the practice of law was not as thrilling as she thought it would be, Amy found her passion in writing. Her first novel, Secrets of Hallstead House, was published in 2014. It tells the story of Macy Stoddard, a nurse who goes to work for a private client among the Thousand Islands in northern New York only to find that there are secrets reaching into both her past and her future. In the face of violence and threats, Macy must search for the identity of the person who will stop at nothing to keep those secrets buried.
Amy lives in New Jersey with her husband, three children, one fantastic dog, two cats who refuse to speak to her, and one tiny fish named Poseidon. She loves reading, traveling, and anything to do with Hawaii.

What are you working on now?
The novel I’m working on right now has a working title of The House of Hanging Jade, but that will almost certainly change. It’s the story of Kailani, a young Hawaiian woman who moves from Washington, D.C., to become the personal chef to a family of four on the Big Island of Hawaii. But her new job in the tropics is anything but tranquil. Kailani is haunted by a person from her recent past, as well as secrets and tensions that unfold in the household where she works.
The book is scheduled for publication in March, 2016.
Amy’s reading recommendation:
Can I list more than one? I’m currently reading Senseless Acts of Beauty by Lisa Verge Higgins, and I love it so far. I also enjoyed The House Girl by Tara Conklin, The Vintage Caper by Peter Mayle, and The Spymistress by Jennifer Chiaverini.
