This is the official web site of author Beth Amos, who is also published under the pseudonyms of Annelise Ryan and Allyson K. Abbott. Beth has enjoyed a varied writing career that included a stint as a book reviewer and several years of nonfiction freelancing. Now she writes only fiction, and in stark contrast to her "day job" as an ER nurse, where she gets to save lives, the one common factor in her fiction, no matter what name it's written under, is that someone always dies.
As Beth Amos she writes stand-alone novels of paranormal suspense, often with a medical flavor. Three of them, COLD WHITE FURY, EYES OF NIGHT, and SECOND SIGHT were published by HarperCollins as paperback originals. Beth has recenty released all three as e-books for the first time.
As Annelise Ryan she writes a mystery series featuring the wry, and often politically incorrect, nurse-turned-coroner, Mattie Winston, published by Kensington Books.
As Allyson K. Abbott she writes a mystery series featuring bar owner, Mack Dalton, who uses her neurological disorder, synesthesia, to help solve crimes. This series is also published by Kensington Books.
Beth has her pseudonyms in part because she figures her current ER patients might not be comfortable knowing she spends her spare time thinking up devious and clever ways to kill people.
