As the daughter of a U.S. Foreign Service officer, Elizabeth Blackwell grew up in Washington, D.C., interspersed with stints in Africa, the Middle East and Europe--pretty much always with a book in hand. She majored in history at Northwestern University (hooray! more reading!) and received her master's in journalism from Columbia University, which led to a career as an editor and writer for a number of publications that have since gone out of business (surely just a coincidence?). She now writes fiction from her home office in the Chicago suburbs, in between wrangling her three children and fighting for a parking spot at the local Target.

Thanks for getting in touch and I'm SO sorry it's taken me so long to respond. For some reason, your question didn't get flagged to my email and only showed up today when I was updating my Goodreads profile. I'm thrilled you liked While Beauty Slept, and I'd love to do another fairy tale eventually, but I don't have any planned at the moment. Right now, I'm focused on historical fiction set in the early 1900s-1920s.....but who knows what the future will bring? Thanks again for your kind words!(less)

I have been reading... really!

I probably shouldn't admit this, because it's too embarrassing. But since this is going to be my first blog post in more than a year, which already makes me look bad, why not come clean?

I've been terrible about keeping up with GoodReads.



(Whew. I'm starting to feel better already.)

I don't have a specific reason; GoodReads didn't do anything wrong. I just haven't been tracking my books here for so Read more of this blog post »

“None of us can know what we are capable of until we are tested.”
Elizabeth Blackwell, While Beauty Slept

“scared me. Before I learned what it really means to live with ghosts. Had the dream expressed an unconscious wish? I thought Lakecrest and I had come to a truce, that my feelings had dulled with time. Maybe I still hated it—more than I’d ever admit. I made my way slowly down the hall, avoiding the squeakiest floorboards. I peeked into Stella’s room, which was dimly illuminated by a night-light in the shape of a twirling ballerina. My daughter”
Elizabeth Blackwell, In the Shadow of Lakecrest

“Whatever such rites entailed, the madness of Dionysus was widely accepted as a religious practice. Indeed, it was one of the few ways women were able to obtain a measure of freedom in an otherwise limited public sphere.   Was”
