Elizabeth’s love of writing romance couldn’t be further from the life she had carved out for herself. Raised in outback and rural Australia, Elizabeth was determined to live a life vibrant with passion, travel, adventure and discovery. And so she invested a lot of years doing just that; she counts serving as a commissioned officer in the Royal Australian Navy, travelling by safari truck through Africa and back-packing through Eastern Europe with her young family as just a few of her achievements. But in the ensuing years, the urge to write intensified as story lines and dialogue continued to materialise from the recesses of her mind. She finally accepted that the voices in her head were really characters enmeshed in the tumultuous Georgian and Regency periods, vying for life on paper. After a nomadic lifestyle, Elizabeth has now settled into her own home and lives surrounded by the nation's treasures, her own hero and one true love, two beautiful daughters and two delinquent miniature long-hair dachshunds.
