I am Rotherham’s foremost (okay, only) writer of quality erotica and erotic romance. Though I’m now based in London, family and football take me back North on a regular basis. Indeed, if you’re ever at a Rotherham United match (I know, what are the chances?) and you spot a small blonde with a large ‘London Millers’ flag, that’ll be me.

Liz For twenty years, I worked on the UK edition of Forum magazine, for most of those years as editor. In that time, I built up the fiction side of the magazine, and was responsible for publishing the first stories by lots of now well-known and established erotic authors – most notably Portia da Costa and Lindsay Gordon, who was until recently Black Lace’s series editor.

However, I love writing even more than I love editing, and I’ve finally taken the plunge to write full-time. I’ve had stories published by Black Lace, Xcite Books, Cleis Press, Circlet Press, Mammoth, Ravenous Romance, Total-e-bound and more, and my collection of three gay erotic novellas, Wild Rides, will be coming out as a print book from Xcite in 2012. And I’m happy in my work…

    You were the first editor to publish my stories, Elizabeth. I went on to be published by Virgin Books Black Lace and most recently by Xcite Books. I’d just like to say thank you for setting me on my way!


  2. Hi Elizabeth. Hope you’re well. Sorry for posting this as a comment, but I just wanted to let you know about my new site, Erotica For All. It’s a site for readers, writers and everyone in between. I’m posting author profiles, free reads, competitions and much more on there, and was hoping you’d like to get involved. Check out http://eroticaforall.co.uk/authors/ to find out more.

    Hey Elizabeth, really miss those EC editorial columns in Forum. 😉

    Good to see you’re writing full-time now though. Send me something for Embrace some day. If you have anything that will fit!!

    First, I’ve read Summer of Lust (loved it) and am currently reading Masked Desires and enjoying it (though im not far into it yet).

    Hello Elizabeth

    I have to say, your writing is amazing – I love it! I have started writing snippets of erotic stories just recently but don’t really know where to go with it (or if my writing is any good). Would it be possible to send you something to read? I would really appreciate your feedback. I know my writing appeals to men but I am very aware that I would like it to appeal to women as well.

    When are you going to write some proper books?

  18. David White says:

    went to R.U. football ground once. We lost 3-1 not going again. lol like your style far too many women hide behind propriety and miss out on life.

    Hello Elizabeth,
    We used to go to the same comprehensive school in Rotherham. You were always terribly good at English as I recall and I used to try and beat you in the maths tests!!!
    Not read any of your books but if I was to start now… Which one would you recommended?

    • Great to hear from you, Julie! If you’re going to read a book of mine, I’d suggest ‘His Secret Boss’ – it’s not too spicy and I like the characters 🙂 Hope the maths is still coming in handy…
      Elizabeth xx

    Hi Elizabeth. Hope you’re doing great and thanks for your work for this great genre. And first of all: Sorry for posting this as a comment, but I haven’t found another opportunity for contacting you!
    I just wanted to let you know about my new site Filthybooks. It’s a site for Erotic Romance addicts in all its facets! I’m posting articles about the best books (in my opinion), general thought about Erotic Romance and especially author interview. For instance we managed to get an interview with H.L. Swan recently! I you would like to check out and maybe list me, that would be awesome:
