I’m an author of historical sagas set in Lancashire – the beautiful county where I was born, grew up, and still live. I’ve also written historical fiction and local interest books under the name Elizabeth Ashworth. On this site you’ll find the first chapters of some of my novels and some short stories to read for free. If you delve a little deeper, you’ll discover all sorts of interesting things that I’ve come across in my research. Just click on the links at the top to get started.
