In 1985, the first A. E. Maxwell crime novel featuring a couple called Fiddler and Fiora was published by Doubleday. The Frog and the Scorpion, received a creative writing award from the University of California. The fourth book in the series, Just Enough Light to Kill, was named by Time magazine as one of the best crime novels of 1988.
Ann and Evan (writing as Ann Maxwell) have published four suspense novels, the most recent of which is Shadows and Silk. These novels appeared on nation-wide bestseller lists.
In 1982, Ann began publishing romances as Elizabeth Lowell.
Under that name she has received numerous professional awards in the romance field, including a Lifetime Achievement award from the Romance Writers of America (1994). Since July of 1992, she has had 15 romance novels on the New York Times list. Her most recent book is an Avon hardcover, MOVING TARGET.
Ann has a BA in English Literature and a lifelong love of reading. When not writing, she enjoys hiking, salmon fishing, cooking, gardening, and just being on their boat, the Silver Raven. She and Evan have two grown children, Matthew and Heather, and a wonderful daughter-in-law, Jennifer.
When asked about her penchant for romance, Ann replies, "I remain well and truly married to Evan, the only man I ever loved. Or, as I said the last time I was asked why I write something so "unrealistic" as romances . . . I write what I know. The enduring love of a good, intelligent, hard-headed man is very much a part of my life."
