Elizabeth is convinced life is better with good coffee, chocolate, and a pair of hiking boots. Ever since her elementary school librarian “published” her epic childhood tales–complete with laminated handmade covers–she’s enjoyed exploring the world through literature. While studying prehistoric Britain at Newcastle University, Elizabeth found story inspiration for rugged warriors in kilts and armor in the tumultuous history of the British Isles and the folklore of Scotland. As an undergrad at the University of Texas at Austin, her prehistoric rock art research drew her to the harsh Texas desert where she imagined charismatic cowboys and the stubborn women who tame them.
A recovering archaeologist and biomed research coordinator, Elizabeth spends her days penning heroes ranging from Scottish and Medieval heroes strapped in swords to Texas cowboys crowned with Stetsons. Whether in kilts or pearl-snaps, her heroes wear plaid! Known for her Ladies of Scotland series written for Entangled Publishing, as well as her HEA at USA TODAY recommended Christmas Wore Plaid, she’s excited to join Dragonblade Publishing to pursue her first Regency series, as well as Tule Publishing to introduce her debut contemporary cowboy romance. She currently lives on a mountainside in West Virginia with her husband, sons, and various pets, and is always honored to hear from readers.
