Elizabeth Barrett's life has revolved around books for many years. She worked as an editor for several publishing houses in New York City, and now has her own freelance editing business. Her first romance novel was published in 1985 and was swiftly followed by four more. In 1994, HarperCollins published her young adult novel, Free Fall. While building her editing business, she kept writing. She has self-published two of her novels, Lost Mothers and Every New Beginning. Her romances and Free Fall will be republished throughout 2016. When she is not writing or editing or reading, Elizabeth can often be found either gardening around her New Hampshire home--or shoveling snow. ...more

Mostly novels, and I've been mixing in some rereads with new books. Rereads include the first three Harry Potter books (because my daughter was rereading them) and the last two Jackson Brodie books by Kate Atkinson, in preparation for reading her new Jackson book, Big Sky. My favorite book so far is one I meant to read a few years ago, when it first came out: What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarity.(less)

So Close

When I last wrote about my current novel in progress, Time Passages, I was taking a pause before the final round of revisions. I am now so close to finishing.

Not that it has been easy. Well, some of it was easy. Obvious spots where I got too wordy, scenes where a character acted, um, out of character. Sections that were so redundant, I’m embarrassed I even wrote them. But there was that big rock t

Maggie O'Farrell has been one of my favorite go-to writers for several years. Like others, I was skeptical when I heard she'd chosen to write an historical, and about William Shakespeare's son, no less. But it's not just about Hamnet, it is about his ...more

This was not I expected from the little I'd heard about it--a mystery by a Nobel Prize winner. Yes, it's a mystery, but that is nearly incidental to this tale of a reclusive elderly woman, Janina, in a small Polish village. The author is masterful at ...more
