MEET A.D. HAY

Hello,

I’m Amelia Levillain. I write under the pen name A. D. Hay and I’m the author of Missing, the first book in the James Lalonde Prequel trilogy and the Byline Thriller Novels also featuring James Lalonde. My books are set in the world of investigative journalism with a dash of conspiracy, crime, and medical sci-fi.

 

When I’m not writing and editing thriller novels, I’m the host of The Authorpreneur Podcast and the Thriller Novel Nerd Podcast. Right now, I’m editing my soon to be published crime thriller novel which is tentatively titled, Book Two. When I’m not writing or hosting my podcasts, I love to travel around Europe with my husband Roland, drink tea, and eat pizza.

When Will Thatcher doesn’t show up for work, James Lalonde is forced to attend an afternoon tea with Alistair Carmichael in Will’s place. The lovely autumn afternoon tea comes to an abrupt end when a body is discovered on the front lawn of the Carmichael Estate with strange markings on its neck.

 

But something is missing, a priceless painting is off the wall. However, it’s no ordinary painting, it’s a van Gogh purchased in an auction a few months prior. But, trouble has its watchful eye on James.

 

Can James figure out who the thief and murderer are before he is next?
