Elizabeth Gill was born in Newcastle upon Tyne and as a child lived in Tow Law, a small mining town on the Durham fells where her family owned a steelworks. She has been a published author for more than thirty years and has written more than forty books.She lives in Durham City and loves the theatre and cinema, good food and wine and the Durham dales where she goes to write in the summer. She likes the awful weather in the north east and writes best when rain is lashing the windows.
She has written several trilogies, some of which will be released as Kindle editions by Quercus next year and available on Amazon and other sites.
You don't have to read the books in order but just to let you know that there are three trilogies.
Swan Island, Silver Street and Sweet Wells revolve around a steel foundry, run by David Black. Swan Island is his wife's story, Silver Street his sister's and Sweet Wells his secretary's story. These book are based on true life events set before during and after World War Two and were all about the author's family.
The other trilogy begins with Shelter from the Storm, The Homecoming and When Day is Done. The Homecoming is actually the last in the trilogy but was written second. All the books stand alone. Shelter from the Storm should be read first.
Paradise Lane is followed by Snow Hall and it's better to read them that way round because the characters from the first book appear in the second. There is a third to this trilogy which is not yet out as an ebook. It's called Dragon's Field. It's best to read them in order.
Where Curlews Cry is a modern novel about three women whose various partners are killed in a train crash and what they do after that. The novel is set around the solicitor they have in common, Sam Browne.
Dream Breakers was set in the 1970s and is the story of a lad who gave up everything, including the girl he loved, to become a successful footballer player in the days when celebrity football was just beginning.
