Lucinda Elliot - recently awarded the B.R.A.G medallion for outstanding fiction for 'That Scoundrel Emile Dubois' and 'Ravensdale' - loves writing Gothic style stories, which isn't surprising because she was brought up in a series of great old isolated houses about England and Wales which her parents were refurbishing (it wasn't so fashionable back then). After that, she lived, studied and worked in London for many years and now lives in Mid Wales with her family.
She loves writing about strong women to complement gung ho males. She also likes to depict historical reality in her historical stories, with the rough and brutal side of life in the Georgian UK not edited out as in so many 'historical' romances.
Her interests include weight traini

Currently, I'm working on a sequel to 'That Scoundrel Emile Dubois'.
Before that, I was working on a story about a Samuel Richardson's Lovelace type villain, but I got such terrible W*****'s B**** over that, I put it in the infamous drawer to return to later.

I finished this on Halloween – highly appropriately, as I don’t think it will be writing a spoiler to say that this is a real ghost story – and there is more than one ghost.

But, as ever, Mari Biella’s style is subtle. No crowd of phantoms jumping out of cupboards here – and as ever, the psychological and the psychic are expertly blended.

She has also done a fine job in creating a s... Read more of this blog post »

That Scoundrel Emile Dubois (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: When young Sophie de Courcy, bored but patient companion to the Countess of Ruthin, agrees to marry her long-time hero, dashing French rogue Émile Dubois, she is catapulted into a dangerous world of Man Vampires and Time Warps. With the help of Agnes, her no nonsense, tarot-reading Welsh maid, she must come to terms with her new husband’s scandalous past, help him defeat the evil Vampire neighbours and to escape from the machinations of time which threaten to destroy their new found love. All this in just one book! Scoundrel is an entertaining, over-the-top Gothic adventure, alive with colourful character comedy as it flits between Revolutionary France and misty Wales.
That Scoundrel Emile Dubois (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Sophie de Courcy is happy to marry the dashing French emigre Emile Dubois, despite the fact that due to the machinations of her neighbours, the sinister Kenricks, he is in danger of turning into a man vampire and is surrounded by a time warp. There is also the slight matter of the criminal past he shared with his valet Georges. Though Sophie soon finds herself a virtual prisoner in their new home with Emile and Georges predatory Man Vampires, Sophie and her redoubtable maid Agnes are determined to defeat the Kenricks and bring Emile and Georges back to humanity. The incongruous combination of earthy eighteenth century rogues and over-the-top Gothic adventure makes for many absurdities as Agnes and Sophie take on the forces of evil with the aid of Agnes' Tarot set and a lot of herbal remedies.

I am sorry to say,of this, as of so many classics,that I think it is overrated. The writing is generally uneven, with some excellent bits, and a good deal of dross. Three and a half stars which will show up as four.

A Shropshire Lad by A.E. Housman
“Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

Lucinda Elliot is on page 120 of 240 of Washington Square: I found this funny at first,but now I really feel too sorry for poor Catherine to do that, though her aunt is a ludicrous character.
