Author A to Z

Elisabeth Hobbes grew up in York, England where she spent her teenage years looking for a handsome Roman or Viking to sweep her off her feet.  Sadly this never happened, however inspired by this she took a degree in History and Art History before training as a teacher.

Elisabeth’s writing career began when she entered her first novel, Falling for her Captor, into Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest in 2013 and finished in third place.  This led to her receiving her first two-book contract with Harlequin Historical.

These days she holds down jobs as a part time teacher and full time mum.  When she isn’t writing, she spends most of her spare time reading and is a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book.

Elisabeth’s other hobbies include skiing, Arabic dance, fencing and exploring dreadful tourist attractions, none of which has made it into a story yet.  She loves historical fiction and has a fondness for dark haired, bearded heroes.

Elisabeth lives in Cheshire with her husband, two children and two cats with ridiculous names.

It's a fact

Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler are considered the third most romantic couple in fiction behind Elizabeth and Mr Darcy and Romeo and Juliet.
