Amanda Kyle Williams is the author of The Stranger You Seek, The Stranger in the Room, and the upcoming Don’t Talk to Strangers, due out this July. She is a 2012 Townsend Prize for Fiction finalist and 2012 Shamus Award nominee.

In order to lend authenticity to her Keye Street series, she studied criminal profiling under Brent Turvey, a nationally known criminologist and profiler, took courses geared to law enforcement in serial homicide investigation, worked with a PI firm in her hometown of Atlanta on surveillance operations, became a court appointed process server, and consulted with professionals in bond and law enforcement. Williams is currently at work on her next Keye Street thriller.
