In the early eighties, nervous novice writer, Elizabeth Genovese attended a taping of Toronto’s Front Page Challenge where a friend introduced her to icon historian, Pierre Berton. After Mr. Berton said he was interested in reading her novel, Elizabeth said she ‘just happened’ to have a manuscript in the trunk of her car. “I’ll warn you, if I don’t like it I’ll say so,” he said, “I will not embarrass myself by submitting a bad manuscript.” Two weeks later at 7:00 a.m., the phone rang: “Elizabeth!

Elizabeth’s books combine supernatural suspense, mystery, and time travel with recurring themes of love obsession and idol worship.

In the Shadow of the Valley by Bobi Conn
"So, wow. This book packs one hell of an emotional punch.

Bobi Conn writes with an intimacy and raw honesty that I felt to my core. She's unflinchingly honest about her upbringing and the way those early years chased her through adulthood. I have immen" Read more of this review »
