Amelia Casey Books & Biography


Amelia Casey is the daughter of wandering parents who imparted a love of travel and foreign cultures early on. She remembers always wanting to read, and later write. As a young girl she would compose stories set in her favourite authors' worlds, happily oblivious of copyright law.

Amelia's first love affair with history came through D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths, and the relationship was profound, the emotions heightened. Since then, she's immersed herself in the study of classical worlds, American and British history, and revolutionary times in Europe.

She is also fascinated by folklore and mythology and has a weakness for ghost stories and sordid tales from the past. Amelia holds a degree in English literature and history, which gave her a chance to explore lifelong passions. Her bookshelf is crammed full of reference books, romantic and genre fiction, and dusty old volumes that prove so irresistible to collect.

After a youth spent sneaking her grandmother's romance novels and hanging around the bookstore to page to the "best parts" in those books, Amelia is thrilled to be writing for Harlequin Historical Undone. You can email her at [email protected]
