Elizabeth Famous grew up on a family farm in rural USA before dashing off to the big city and going Ivy League. Never satisfied with doing things the usual way, she married a man from the other side of the globe and won a doctoral fellowship in humanities. Raising her lively and opinionated children is the greatest challenge of her life. She likes to write about flawed characters dealing with challenging situations not touched upon in traditional romance novels.

I'm so glad you enjoyed LOVE AND CANDY, and I have good news for you: my latest novel, LIGHT, BRIGHT & SPARKLING, features Samantha and Delaney ... and their kids! It's the story of Samantha's sister, Annabelle Montclare. Annabelle, who lives and works in LA, receives a visit from Sam's family toward the beginning of the novel, and the story ends at an end-of-summer beach party with all the Montclares in attendance. I believe the scenes with Delaney and Samantha will give you a sense of how their relationship works out. :) Best Wishes, Elizabeth Famous(less)

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
"I always believed War and Peace was one of my three favourite novels. Now, after reading it a second time, I wouldn't include it in my favourite 30. Without question, to my mind, Anna Karenina is the better novel.

Love and Candy by Elizabeth Famous


Elizabeth Famous It's on Barnes and Noble, Smashwords and Kobobooks. I wish it was on Amazon but they're very slow with formatting the paperback edition so the Kindle version won't be out for another week or so. The .MOBI ebook version on Smashwords works on Kindle. :)

I realized the timing is off. Sorry.
