Pacific Northwest native Elsa Watson loves to write about two of her favorite things: history and animals. Whether she's telling stories about Maid Marian and Elizabeth Tudor or dogs and people who switch bodies, Elsa loves bringing her imaginary world to life.

Elsa is the author of MAID MARIAN, a re-telling of the Robin Hood legend, and THE OTHER ELIZABETH, a story for younger readers about 14-year-old Elizabeth Tudor. Her dog books include THE LOVE DOG, the story of a dog named Apollo who works in reality TV, and DOG DAYS, about a dog and woman who switch bodies. Publishers Weekly named DOG DAYS as one of the best romances of 2012.
