Hy Conrad has made a career out of mystery, earning a Scribe Award and garnering three Edgar nominations, while developing a horde of popular games and interactive films, hundreds of stories, and a dozen books of short mysteries. In the world of TV, he is best known for his eight seasons as a writer and co-executive producer for the ground-breaking series Monk.

The Amy’s Travel Mystery series has given Hy the chance to combine a mystery career with his love of travel, which started with a European tour in high school and now includes seventy countries, not counting airport layovers. He also loves listening to other people’s travel stories, as long as they realize it might all end up in a book.

When not killing people or checking luggage, Hy splits his time between Key West and Vermont. No matter where he is, he can be found on his website, hyconrad.com.
