Pseudonym: Ellery Adams.
Pseudonym: Sylvia May.
Pseudonym: Susan Furlong.

Lucy Arlington was originally conceived by the writing team of Ellery Adams and Sylvia May, two friends who collaborated on an idea that became A Novel Idea Mystery Series. Together, the duo penned the first three books in the series: BURIED IN A BOOK, EVERY TRICK IN THE BOOK, and BOOKS, COOKS, AND CROOKS. As time passed and their personal writing workload grew, the two decided to pass the baton to another terrific author: Susan Furlong. In addition to writing as Lucy Arlington, Susan Furlong is the author of the upcoming series, The Georgia Peach Mysteries.

Ellery Adams grew up on a beach near the Long Island Sound. Having spent her adult life in a series of landlocked towns, she cherishes her memories of open water, violent storms, and the smell of the sea. Ms. Adams has held many jobs including caterer, retail clerk, car salesperson, teacher, tutor, and tech writer, all the while penning poems, children's books, and novels. She now writes full–time from her home in Virginia. She currently writes the Books by the Bay Mysteries and the Charmed Pie Shoppe Mysteries.

Sylvia May is a fiction writer who has lived in The Netherlands, Canada, the US, and currently resides in Bermuda. She's been writing since she was a child; however careers in computer programming and music education, and raising her children, kept her too busy to pursue it as a serious vocation until her nest emptied. She is delighted to now be able to write full–time, in between scuba diving, golf, painting, photography, and riding her scooter. She lives with her husband and has three grown children. Her first novel, The Unraveling of Abby Settel, was inspired by her relocation several years ago, and received an Honorable Mention in the 2011 Reader Views Literary Awards.
