After graduating in Law in the UK, Liz moved to California where she led a varied life - from cocktail waitressing on Sunset Strip to secretary to the CEO of a large Japanese trading company. Upon returning to England, she completed a degree in English and then taught for a number of years before developing her writing career.

Her debut novel, THE ROAD BACK, was voted Book of the Year 2012 by US Coffee Time & Romance, and in the following year, A BARGAIN STRUCK was shortlisted for the RoNA for Best Romantic Historical. These and THE LOST GIRL, EVIE UNDERCOVER, THE ART OF DECEPTION, the last two being contemporary novels set in Italy, were shortlisted in their respective categories by the Festival of Romantic Fiction. A WESTERN HEART, a novella set in Wyoming 1880, was published digitally and as an audio book.

THE DARK HORIZON introduced readers to The Linford Series, a sweeping saga set between the wars. It was followed by THE FLAME WITHIN and THE LENGTHENING SHADOW. Each of three books can be read as a standalone, and they are now available in a box set, THE LINFORD COLLECTION.

Her most recent novels, DARJEELING INHERITANCE, COCHIN FALL, HANOI SPRING and SIMLA MIST comprise THE COLONIALS. Each is a standalone set in a different location, with different characters, in different years.

EINE ERBSCHAFT IN DARJEELING, the translation into German of DARJEELING INHERITANCE, was published in July 2022, and was followed by LIEBE UND VERRAT IN COCHIN (the German version of COCHIN FALL) in October 2022.

AM TAGESENDE (THE DARK HORIZON) was published in February, 2023, and will be followed later in the year by DIE WIEDERKEHR (THE FLAME WITHIN) and IM DÄMMERLICHT (THE LENGTHENING SHADOW).

All of Liz's German translations are by Ingrid Price-Gschlössl.

A second edition of THE ROAD BACK was published in August 2022, and this was followed by the publication in November 2022 of IN A FAR PLACE, which tells the story of one of the characters in THE ROAD BACK, the missionaries' son, Peter Henderson.

Liz now lives in Windsor, Berkshire. She's a member of The Romantic Novelists’ Association, The Historical Novel Society, and The Society of Authors. She gives talks and workshops at literary festivals and conferences. Her hobbies are theatre, cinema, reading and cryptic crosswords.
