After growing up in the Midwest, Amy Carol Reeves moved to South Carolina sixteen years ago. Her ridiculous obsession with Lord Byron, led to a PhD in nineteenth-century British literature from the University of South Carolina. She published several academic articles before realizing that it was much more fun to write about Jack the Ripper. This resulted in a young adult historical fiction trilogy about the East End murders. The first book in the series, Ripper, debuted in 2012.
Amy lives in Columbia, South Carolina with her husband, Shawn, three young children, and a seriously spoiled Shih Tzu named Maisie. She loves to binge-watch Dr. Who, practice yoga, and tease through writing plot problems during long runs. She finds writing inspiration through wandering around crumbling graveyards, traveling abroad, and exploring the lowcountry landscape and stories of her state.
