Elisabeth Hobbes grew up in York where she spent most of her teenage years wandering around the city 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 wrote from a very early age, filling notebooks with stories starring her friends and family. Her official writing career began when she entered her first novel into Harlequin's So You Think You can Write contest and finished in third place.

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 young children, three cats with ridiculous names and a proto-campervan with an even sillier one.
