Elizabeth Thornton was born and educated in Aberdeen, Scotland, where she taught school for a number of years. In 1969, she and her husband, also a teacher, emigrated to Canada with their three young sons, a decision they have never regretted.
At the age of 46, Elizabeth read her first romance by Georgette Heyer and was captivated by the Regency genre. Hereafter, writing became her hobby. In 1987, her first book, a small Regency entitled, Bluestocking Bride, was published by Zebra books. Two years and four books later, she resigned from her position as lay minister of First Presbyterian Church, Winnipeg, to become a full-time writer.
She is the author of five Regency romances and fourteen historical romances. She has been nominated for and received many awards, and her books regularly appear on national bestselling lists. They have been translated into many languages.
Her three sons are all grown-up and married now, and she and her husband have five precious grandchildren.
Elizabeth's hobbies include reading (particularly romance, mystery and suspense novels, biography, and history), and traveling to the UK to do research for her novels.
