Welcome to my website!
Hard though it may be to believe, I've now got several books out. But I haven't forgotten about my garden, either, and will be working on new articles about roses and Old Garden Roses in the months ahead.
Big Note for Rose Lovers: I finally got my hands on a copy of Jules. Gravereaux's 1912 list of the roses grown at Malmaison, La Malmaison. les roses de l'impératrice Jospéhine. With that in hand, I'll be posting a list of those roses, along with other relevant information. Sadly, while there was never a list made of the roses grown at Malmaison during it's height, Gravereaux made the best attempt at creating such a list. The list will be created on my Amy Corwin author site. The list is under construction now.
For those of you who are desperately searching for a gift, especially one for yourself, how about a cookbook?
It took several months, but I transcribed
my grandmother's handwritten cookbook--filled with recipes from the Great
Depression through the early 1960's. There are close to 200 recipes,
including dozens of cakes, pies, and cookies. It may be just the thing
to give as a gift, or buy it for yourself to make
something special when you're hosting a party. Or just need something to
cheer yourself up. It's called
The Rowley Cookbook--just click on the title or the book cover if you
need a gift for someone who has everything!
For those following my career as a writer, my pseudonym is Amy Corwin and I write classic Regency romances and mysteries: http://www.amycorwin.com.
A Fall of Silver, a paranormal romance is out! If you hunger for Urban Fantasy or vampire stories, this may be just the relief your seeking for that insatiable hunger.
Whacked!, my first contemporary mystery is out in hardcover from Five Star! It's set in North Carolina and is a light mystery I hope you will enjoy.
Escaping Notice, a Regency romantic mystery, is out! It is the next book in the Archer family series, but you don't have to read them in any particular order. It combines mystery with a touch of romance and humor, and I hope you will check it out.

A Rose Before Dying, the second story in the Second Sons series is now out! Charles Vance, Earl of Castlemoor, is determined to prove his uncle's innocence when he's accused of murdering his ex-mistress. The only clues Charles has are roses and taunting notes left behind by the vicious killer.

I also joined the ranks of the paranormal authors. I have a new paranormal called: Vampire Protector and it's getting great reviews, too!
The Necklace, my next historical romantic mystery is out from Highland Press! It's actually a "prequel" to my first regency romantic mystery, I Bid One American, so I hope it will get just as many great reviews.
