Elizabeth Boyle

Writer

Elizabeth Boyle, a former pirate hunter for Bill Gates and now a full-time writer, has written stories since childhood, including tales about her imaginary friend, an oversized Holstein named John Clapper, eventually graduating to notebooks of the usual bad, adolescent poetry that only an angst-ridden teenager can conjure. After college and a stint of travelling, Elizabeth began writing what she loved to read: romance novels.

Elizabeth’s debut novel, BRAZEN ANGEL won the Dell Diamond Debut Award and in 1997, the RITA for Best First Novel, as well as the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice and Readers’ Choice awards, and was nominated for the RITA for Best Long Historical. She has since published twenty three more historical romances, many of which have found their way onto the USA Today and NY Times bestseller lists, and garnered numerous other awards.
