About the Author:

Amy Tector has spent more than 20 years plumbing the secrets squirrelled away in archives — whether it’s uncovering a whale’s ear (true story) in a box of old photographs, or working in The Hague for the United Nations’ International Criminal Tribunal for War Crimes in the former Yugoslavia, she has been privy to hidden records and extraordinary secrets.

She now works at Canada’s national archives, Library and Archives Canada, and is adjunct professor at the University of Ottawa and a sessional instructor at Carleton University.

Amy’s debut novel, THE HONEYBEE EMERALDS was published in spring 2022. Her second novel, THE FOULEST THINGS, is the first in a loose trilogy centered on murders and mayhem in the archives.

Amy has a PhD in English literature  from the Université Libre de Bruxelles and lives in Ottawa, Canada with a daughter named Violet, a husband named Andrew and a dog named Daffodil. She is an enthusiastic, but incompetent, cross-country skier. Learn more: https://www.amytector.com/
