ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Amy Cecil is an award-winning Indie author of both historical and contemporary romance. Her penchant for Austen fan fiction, won her the title of Favorite Historical Romance Author (2016-2017) while her MC series has won several awards throughout the Indie community. Recently, she has expanded her repertoire to the thriller and erotic genres.
For as long as she can remember, Amy always had a book (or two) that she was reading for the love of getting lost within its pages. Amy has been heard to have said, “I’ve never given much thought to becoming a writer myself until I realized that if I hadn’t written my own version of Mr. Darcy, I might have run out of material to read.”
And thus, her first novel was born, A Royal Disposition. In the words of Miss Austen herself, “I wish as well as everybody else to be perfectly happy; but, like everybody else, it must be in my own way.” Ms. Cecil writes to do just that.
She lives in North Carolina with her husband, Kevin, and their four dogs. When she isn’t creating her next masterpiece, or traveling the country for book signings, she enjoys spending time with her husband, friends, and of course her fur babies.
“Face life as you find it-defiantly and unafraid.” -Nietzsche
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a book (or two) that I was reading. I’ve enjoyed reading all types of genres and love to get lost within the pages of whatever story I’m engrossed in at the time. I’ve never given much thought to becoming a writer myself until just a few years ago, when my best friend suggested that I write my own book. I had been reading Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF) at the time and I had read several of them. I had gotten to the point where I was afraid that I was going to run out of that particular genre to read. I was telling her about a story that I had thought about and that nobody had written that scenario yet that I had seen. Her reply was, “You should write it.” It wasn’t until that moment that I actually seriously thought about writing. I wrote A Royal Disposition in thirty days. The words just poured out of my head and I was constantly writing. I carried a notebook with me at all times. One laid on my nightstand next to my bed, they were everywhere; but I just couldn’t risk coming up with an idea and not being able to record it. Since then, I’ve become a little more sophisticated and I use my phone or iPad to record those moments.
Next to spending time with my husband and my furbabies, there is nothing I enjoy more than writing. Recently, I moved away from historical fiction and moved into contemporary. It’s been an incredible challenge for me and I’ve had so much fun creating the bad boys of the Knights of Silence Motorcycle Club. I haven’t completely walked away from JAFF and hope to create another Darcy and Elizabeth love story, but right now, the Knights need me.
