Elizabeth was that weird kid who loved composition assignments back in grade school. While other kids glared at the teacher, she was always excited at the prospect of creating a new world. However, it wasn’t until her own children were all in school—and the house remained clean for more than a few minutes at a time—that she found the time to really write.
And though it took some years before she realized her dream of being published, Elizabeth says the wait was worth every minute. She credits her husband, Bob, with giving her the kind of love, patience and understanding that have added a special touch to her stories.
Since that time, Elizabeth Sinclair’s books have won The National Reader’s Choice Award, The Anne Bonney Reader’s Choice Award, Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award, Maggie Award of Excellence, and placed in the Heart of Excellence. She has also won a Gold Medal Top Pick from the Romantic Times Book Club.
A New Yorker by birth, Elizabeth became a Floridian by the grace of God. After arriving in the nation’s oldest city of St Augustine, Florida, she co-founded the Ancient City Romance Authors there and remains an active member today. Her many talents include chairing ACRA’s annual Fiction Writers on the Beach Conference (“The best little conference in northeast Florida!”), which attracts attendees from all over the US.
She is also a member of Romance Writers of America, RWA’s Kiss of Death Chapter, and Sisters in Crime. Elizabeth served as RWA’s Region 3 Director and chaired the 2001 RWA Annual Conference in New Orleans.
Elizabeth is well known for her HAWKS MOUNTAIN series and her instructional book, THE DREADED SYNOPSIS. Her newest book, THE LAST MOVE, is a tense, arson-based thriller that her favorite review states, “Should not be read at home alone, at night. Ever.”
She shares her Florida home with her husband and their two furry children: Ripley, a Collie, and Miss Lily, a Golden Retriever. Her human family has expanded to include five grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
