Meet the Author

The world of Romance writing is far removed from Elizabeth Power's childhood days. Brought up in England, her parents' broken marriage coupled with her father's chronic ill-health meant life wasn't always easy, and times remained hard for the family until Elizabeth's late teenage years. Her father, a published author of children's stories was, and still is her role model for life, in that he never faltered from his beliefs and principles no matter how difficult the circumstances. His influence, and love of the written word was naturally passed to his daughter.

The difficult times at home brought about many changes of school. The lack of continuity and generally unsettled nature of her education resulted in disliking school, and a constant longing to be out in the working world. Elizabeth's way of getting through these difficult years was to write, and she produced her first romantic novel of some sixty thousand words at the age of fourteen.

It didn't take long before Elizabeth's literary aspirations were traded for that of the opposite sex and a career as a legal secretary. Life was so full during these years that her literary ambitions became somewhat overshadowed, although it goes without saying that short stories and poems frequently replaced the wills and conveyances in her typewriter during slack periods!

A whirlwind romance resulted in 'wedding bells' in her early twenties. The needs of the home and a full time career became her priority. Despite the ever present nagging little voice in her conscience that constantly reminded her of her childhood dreams, the writing stopped. Her reply to her conscience was that 'she would start tomorrow', but there was always something to do.

A few weeks before her thirtieth birthday, Elizabeth was thinking about what she had done with her first thirty years and realised she had been telling herself she would 'start writing tomorrow' for at least twelve of them. She couldn't help wondering, 'Whatever happened to that dream?' Within two weeks her 'tomorrow' would come, when fate took a hand in the form of Redundancy!

Writing was now Elizabeth's life. After some considerable time and increasingly 'positive' rejections, the letter that was to change her life arrived from Mills & Boon. Rude Awakening was to be published in 1986 - quite an apt title considering those thirtieth birthday thoughts! Thirteen more titles followed, but then pressures brought on by years of family illness resulted in a slowing down and eventual ceasing of output. After a prolonged absence, Elizabeth is so pleased to be back at her keyboard again, and with new romances already in the pipeline and more on the way, she is making sure that Harlequin Mills & Boon readers will now have the chance of reading her titles on a regular basis.

Living with her husband in a three hundred year old English cottage, Elizabeth says they 'lead a simple life'. Their cottage, woodland walks, roaring log fires, the local birds and wildlife are the things that make them happy. Having no children, a stray cat that moved in and stayed eleven years, she says 'became our baby. She taught us so much, and really made us think about how animals feel'. Elizabeth has vegetarian leanings, following in the footsteps of her life-long vegetarian father.

Of her writing, emotional intensity is paramount in her books. She says 'times, places and trends change, but emotion is timeless.' A powerful story line with maximum emotion, set in a location in which you can really live and breath while the story unfolds, is what she strives for.
