UK flag

Elizabeth Lee was born in London but grew up in a tiny village, where She spent most of the time with her nose in a book - anything from Enid Blyton to Shakespeare, She would read it all! She now lives in Warwickshire with her teenage children, and haven't lost her love of books.
She's been writing for a number of years and her work has been selected for the Women toring Project and Penguin's Write Now Live.
 In 2018 She was awarded the Marian Keyes Scholarship to study on Curtis Brown Creative's novel writing course, an incredible opportunity that She will always be grateful for. Cunning Women is her debut novel, written between working two jobs and parenting two teens. Set in 17th Century Lancashire, it is the story of Sarah, her struggle against poverty and prejudice, and her defiant hope for a better life.

Elizabeth Lee recommends
The Nightingale's Castle (2024)
Sonia Velton
"The Nightingale's Castle is a beautifully crafted story that keeps the reader constantly balanced between hope and fear, just as the characters are. A gripping tale of power, loyalty and betrayal. I loved it."
The Tower (2024)
Flora Carr
"An intimate, exquisitely told story of Mary, Queen of Scots and her maids during their year of imprisonment, portraying their hopes and fears, their affections and irritations with such skill that you feel you are in the room with them. A beautiful, poignant book that draws you into the world of these women so fully that it is a wrench to leave it."
Medea (2024)
Rosie Hewlett
"Deliciously dark in its portrayal of obsession, manipulation and the terrible temptations of power, Medea is a compelling read, every bit as enthralling as it's heroine."
