Lucinda Elliot - recently awarded the B.R.A.G medallion for outstanding fiction for 'That Scoundrel Emile Dubois' - loves writing Gothic style stories, which isn't surprising because she was brought up in a series of great old isolated houses 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.
Her insterests include weight training and body shaping,and she was once a champion Sportsfighter, but apart from that her interests are quite geeky. Reading classic novels, conservation, gardening, and even names and their meanings (bring on the carrot juic

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’m celebrating on two accounts.


One, I have won a second award.


I’ve just heard I’ve won a B.R.A.G medallion for ‘Outstanding Self-Published Fiction’ for my historical romance spoof ‘Ravensdale’.


That was a lovely Easter present.


Here’s the B.R.A.G award website, for those writers wishing to enter their own work, but even more for those readers, who are always wanted to review book...

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 found this story highly original. There is a fascinating combination of dark comedy combined with a more serious theme – the protagonist’s odyssey through misfortune – sometimes bathetic, sometimes tragic – towards spiritual enlightenment.

Lucinda Elliot is on page 390 of 416 of The Manchester Man: Despite the faults of purple prose and Dickens type sentimentality, I have found this a fascinating read, particularly the extreme abusive behaviour of Laurence Aspinanal towards Augusta, which is apparently, based on fact, and strikes me as so extreme and melodramatic that I suspected that before I read it. No author would dare to go to such extremes as husbands riding horses into their wife and baby.
