Amelia Humble had a secret. She knew perfectly well that the criminal mind was something that proper ‘40s housewives, such as herself, just didn’t go poking about in. The trouble was she simply couldn’t resist. Her unsuitable interests were splendidly concealed by her husband Charles, who had the occupation of private detective, and a reputation for being one of the finest investigative minds in England. Mind you, he hadn’t always carried such distinction, having little reputation for any particular shrewdness in his bachelor days; but it could not be denied that marriage had been the making of Charles Humble. When a prominent socialite vanishes from her own cocktail party, leaving nothing behind save a solitary rose; Amelia isn’t about to pass up the prospect of wrapping her mind around such a conundrum. It’s not long before the mystery of the missing woman leads to a demand for ransom money, and amidst contradicting statements the once solid facts are left unrecognizably twisted.

For Brina Williamson, art came first. Being long immersed in various art mediums, she settled into the role of freelance artist, and over the years has completed the art for numerous book covers, as well as interior illustrations. However, writing has always been a central creative outlet for her. Stories seem to spring visually to her mind, in much the same way as her artwork. She gladly takes inspiration from everywhere; and for the mystery of The Pale Rose, it came in the form of a dream—perhaps brought on from watching or reading too many cozy whodunits. More mysteries came flooding into her head, with characters and visuals so vividly intriguing to her that it seemed senseless to leave them forever unrealized and rattling around in her brain.
