Lexie Elliott has been writing for as long as she can remember, but she began to focus on it more seriously after she lost her banking job in 2009 due to the Global Financial Crisis. After some success in short story competitions, she began planning a novel. With two kids and a (new) job, it took some time for that novel to move from her head to the page, but the result was "The French Girl", which will be published by Berkley in February 2018 - available to pre-order now!

When she's not writing, Lexie can be found running, swimming or cycling whilst thinking about writing. In 2007 she swam the English Channel solo. She won't be doing that again. In 2015 she ran 100km, raising money for Alzheimer Scotland. She won't be doing that again eithe

Whilst there are so many different books I have loved immersing myself in, if I'm getting a free passport to another universe I'm going to choose somewhere where I can see things and do things that are very different to my present reality. When I was in my early teens I adored Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series, so I would choose to go to Pern. After all, who wouldn't want to see another planet and ride a dragon?!(less)

Lexie Elliott really has become an auto-read author for me, especially after loving The French Girl last year. Elliott has developed a talent for good slow-building suspense novels, without it ever dipping it's toes in the slow-b" Read more of this review »

Lexie Elliott is reading Lincoln in the Bardo: Loved it. Such an ingenious approach and generosity of spirit running through it. Not to be read in one sitting, though - you need to allow your brain time to be beguiled.
