Beth Amos aka Annelise Ryan aka Allyson K. Abbott — yes, Amos has three nom de plumes — is one of the three recipients of the Wisconsin Library Association’s 2017 Notable Author Award.
Amos of Stoughton, who is an emergency room nurse, writes mysteries under all three names.
The other two recipients are Victoria Houston of Rhinelander and Sarah Monette who lives in the Madison area.
These three writers and other WLA award recipients will be honored on Thursday during the association’s annual conference in the Wisconsin Dells.
Among those recipients is former Council for Wisconsin Writers Board Member poet Robin Chapman for her Six True Things, as well as a number of current and past CWW award winners.
