Elisabeth Hobbes  

I grew up in York where I spent most of my teenage years wandering around the city looking for a handsome Roman or Viking to sweep me off my feet. Sadly it never happened but I developed a love of the past and went on to read History and Art History at university before venturing into the world of teaching.

These days I hold down jobs as a teacher and mum and have strong views on SPAG and the National Curriculum.

I live in Cheshire with my husband, two young children and two cats with ridiculous names because the car broke down here in 1999 and I never left.

I love historical fiction and have a fondness for dark haired, bearded heroes. When I’m not writing, I spend a lot of my spare time reading and have become something of a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book!

I’m fond of ginger mojitos and Thai hot and sour soup, though not at the same time.
