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.

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)

pick up a friend. A big black truck—so common here in New England—pulled in
beside me. I had my car windows down to let in fresh air, but the pickup driver
kept his engine running and had his talk-radio station on just a little too
loud. With regret, I put up my driver’s side window and returned to reading my
book.





After a minute, the driver got ou
