More About the Author

I've been a published writer since I sold my first short story to Pony Annual in my teens. Since then my work has been published in a wide variety of magazines including Lancashire Magazine, Lancashire Life, The Lady, My Weekly, People's Friend and Take a Break Fiction Feast.

I have written three local interest books:
Champion Lancastrians
Tales of Old Lancashire
Lancashire - Who Lies Beneath?

My first historical novel The de Lacy Inheritance was published by Myrmidon Books in June 2010 and has been followed by:
An Honourable Estate, along with its short prequel The Lady of Haigh.
By Loyalty Bound, which tells the story of the mistress of Richard III.
Favoured Beyond Fortune, which tells the story of Alicia de Lacy, set in the reign of Edward II.
The Circle of Fortune, which continues Alicia's story and her fight for her lands and castles.
Many Kinds of Silence, which traces the lost years of William Shakespeare and his relationship with his patron Ferdinando Stanley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lady Of Haigh 8 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The novel was very well written, and brought the time of the Lady Of Haigh to life. I was introduced to the story of the Lady of Haigh Hall by friends who live in Wigan years ago, and have photos of the area of Mabs Cross. A most enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent portrayal of medieval life 25 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed Elizabeth Ashworth's portrayal of the early lives of Mabel and William against the background of life in late 13th and early 14th century England. This background came across with wonderful authenticity without being 'overdone' (as I have sometimes seen in other medieval novels). It introduced us to the sights, sounds, smells, ambience and customs of the times, while at the same time giving the delightful story of how Mabel and William met, fell in love and married. After this 'taster', I look forward to reading more about Mabel and William in 'An Honourable Estate'.
Definitely a 'must read' for anyone who enjoys English medieval history, and also a great introduction for anyone who has no prior knowledge of this period. As a medieval historian by profession, I give this book my highest recommendation.
