Danger, romance, and a pistol-packing Victorian – Amanda Quick’s “The Mystery Woman”

mysterywomanAmanda Quick is back. This Seattle-based women’s fiction author knows how to fold romance, danger and spooky doings into one entertaining package. Her latest is  “The Mystery Woman” – it’s the story of Beatrice Lockwood, a 19th-century young Englishwoman who pretty much explodes every convention of the Victorian era, from making her own living to carrying a pistol around in her stocking to ensnaring a mysterious cane-wielding stranger with her considerable charms .

Intrigued? Ready to lace up your boots and follow Beatrice into the lair of a crazed scientist who wants to raise the dead? Before you proceed, just fyi that Amanda is one of the alter egos of writer Jayne Ann Krentz, who writes under three different pen names. Krentz appears tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors program on state Public Affairs Network TVW.

You can catch it at 7 and 10 tonight on TVW (“Well Read” also airs at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday on Tacoma public television station KBTC and at 11:30 a.m. Sunday on UWTV).  If you can’t wait, here’s a link to the interview, and for more information, here’s the Seattle Times review.
