About this author

Lucinda Elliot loves writing Gothic style stories, which isn't suprising because she was brought up in a series of big 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 do 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 juice). She loves a laugh above anything.

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.

The Female EunuchToday, Im going to rant a bit (did I hear you say So whats new?)


I came across some low criticism in a feminist ezine that really dismayed me.

As this remark which seems to have gone unchallenged for two years is part of a criticism of some opinions about literature expressed by Germaine Greer in The Female Eunuch, published some forty-five years ago, no less, Id better explain why I think it m...

That Scoundrel Emile Dubois (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 26, 2012 12:06PM
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.
That Scoundrel Emile Dubois (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 15, 2012 06:34AM
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.
