US Postal Inspector Amanda McMurrey

Amanda McMurrey has been a US Postal Inspector for over 22 years. She's worked almost every area of investigation: from Identity Theft to Mail Fraud; homicide to narcotics trafficking; terrorism to burglaries; robberies to parcel bombs. On the side, she serves as the US Postal Inspection Service's regional Public Information Officer and Congressional Liaison. Amanda has spent her entire career in the great state of Texas and wouldn't have it any other way. She plans to retire in the next two years after a satisfying career and settling near Austin.

Amanda’s been writing for the last four-ish years. She's not published—yet!—but expects to go indie around retirement with four books, the start of an urban fantasy series. She is also working on her first romantic suspense featuring, you guessed it, Postal Inspectors.

The Dallas MWASW group meets the first Saturday of each month (except January) at Olive Garden, 4240 Belt Line, Addison, TX, 75001. Meeting time is 10 AM-noon, followed by lunch. There is a $10 fee (cash only—please bring fives or ones) for the program and drinks-only attendees. The fee is reduced to $5 (cash only) for those staying for lunch. All who attend are encouraged to remain and break bread(sticks) with your fellow writers. Contact info: Check the group's web site for more information.
