When Elizabeth Jane isn’t writing fiction, she writes copy, works as a librarian, teaches Welsh and blogs at http:// hannercymraes.blogspot.com. In 2007, an early draft of her historical novel, Chrysalis, was short-listed for a manuscript development award, in 2008, it won an academic award. In 2009, her short story, Beyond the Blackout Curtain, won the Bristol Short Story Prize. More recently, her short story, The Wharfie, received a Highly Commended in the inaugural Boroondara Short Story competition. She is working on a new draft of Chrysalis. She hasn’t put a date on its completion. But she is thoroughly enjoying the re-creation process.
