Elizabeth Ashtree's first novel, AN OFFICER AND A HERO, was a double 2000 RITA finalist for best long contemporary and best first novel. This Harlequin Superromance won a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award.

Ms. Ashtree's article for Romance Writers of America's, Writer's Report, on the subject of plagiarism, was well received. In writing A HARD WORD, Ms. .Ashtree drew upon her legal knowledge developed over more than two decades as an attorney for the Federal Government.

Legal Times, the primary Washington, D.C. area newspaper for attorneys, requested that she write a short romantic fiction piece, after reading about her in an article on lawyers who write fiction that appeared in a sister newspaper in Atlanta, Georgia. For the Valentine's Day edition, the Legal Times published ROMANCE IN THE MUSIC ROOM, the first piece of fiction printed by this non-fiction publication.

Her second novel, THE COLONEL AND THE KID, hit the shelves in January 2002 and has received excellent reviews. It was followed by A CAPTAIN'S HONOR, released in October of 2002. A MARRIAGE OF MAJOR came out in July 2004, and her next book, INTO THIN AIR, will be released in March, 2005.
