Beth Amos
Beth Amos is an American author of mystery, thriller and suspense novels. She writes the Mattie Winston series (as Annelise Ryan), the Mac’s Bar Mysteries series (as Allyson K. Abbott) and several standalone novels under her real name. In real life, Beth is an emergency room registered nurse in Wisconsin.

    I just finished all the Maddie Winston books and was hungry for more so got The Vicarious Liver only to find that it is the exact same book as Working Stiff. What a disappointment.
