Guest Spot - Amy Maroney

Amy Maroney lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family. She spent many years as a writer and editor of nonfiction before turning her hand to historical fiction. She’s currently obsessed with pursuing forgotten women artists through history. When she’s not diving down research rabbit holes, she enjoys hiking, drawing, dancing, traveling, and reading. 

Amy is the author of a historical mystery trilogy about a Renaissance-era female artist and the modern-day scholar on her trail. The series was inspired by travels in Europe over several decades, most recently with her husband and two young daughters in tow. During that trip, Amy discovered a 500-year-old portrait of a woman, painted by a woman. Intrigued by the idea of female Old Masters hidden in history's shadows, she resolved to write a novel about such an artist. One novel soon turned into three: The Girl from Oto, Mira’s Way, and A Place in the World

Find Book 1, The Girl from Oto, here. To receive The Promise, a free prequel novella to the series, join the author's readers’ group at Follow Amy on BookBub at, or find her on Twitter @wilaroney, Instagram @amymaroneywrites, and Facebook.

Amy is currently at work on her next historical fiction series. It stars a female artist born on the Greek island of Rhodes during the rule of the Knights Hospitaller in the fifteenth century. A future of adventure, intrigue, and danger awaits the heroine–and yes, there will be pirates.
