About Elisabeth



Welcome to my website! I hope you’ve got a beverage of choice (tea for me). Here’s a little bit about me.

My writing career began when my husband was working away and I decided to use my brain instead of binge watching TV (luckily this was before the days of Netflix or neither of us would be here. I started writing a story about a determined medieval woman facing up to a dark eyed man in a forest clearing, which gradually grew into a whole book.  I entered it into Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest in 2013 and finished in third place (which meant I had to admit what I’d been doing and why the house was such a tip).  I was offered a two book contract and haven’t looked back sone!  

As well as writing, I work as a Primary school teacher but I’d rather be writing full time because unlike five year olds, my characters generally do what I ask them (and don’t come to me with suspiciously damp shoelaces).  When I’m not writing, I spend most of my spare time reading (I’m a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book).

I love historical fiction and have a fondness for dark haired, bearded heroes.

I enjoy skiing, singing, and exploring tourist attractions with my family.  The children are resigned to spending their weekends visiting the past and watching me lean too far over railings to get photos.  I love hot and sour soup and ginger mojitos- but not at the same time!

I live in Cheshire with my husband, two children and two cats with ridiculous names (the cats not the kids -though they might disagree) because the car broke down there in 1999 and I never left. That’s a true story and an indication of how apathetic I am.
