After a thirty-plus year career as a technical writer and consultant, I gave it all up in my sixties to tell lies for a living. I am a Brummie who spent many years living in cities and large towns, but have not moved to a small semi-rural location in Devon where I see myself happily living out my days.
I write fiction and non-fiction under the pen name of Elizabeth Ducie. My main genre is cozy mysteries set in the fictional village of Coombesford; think Midsomer Murders set in south Devon.
I am the author of the Jones Sisters thrillers, set in the sometimes murky world of international pharmaceuticals; and I also write and teach on the topic of Author Business Foundations. I am a passionate believer in the legitimacy of self-publishing as an alternative to the more traditional routes, and I coach new indie authors through the first steps in the journey to publication.
In 2015, my debut novel, Gorgito’s Ice Rink, was runner up in the Self-Published Book of the Year Awards.
