About me

When Elizabeth Jane Corbett isn’t writing, she works as a librarian, teaches Welsh and blogs at http:// elizabethjanecorbett.com. She is a reluctant gym member, a lover of red shoes, good coffee, dark chocolate, commuter cycling and, of course, historical fiction. In 2007, an early draft of her historical novel, Chrysalis, was short-listed for a manuscript development 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 has recently completed a complete re-draft her historical novel and is working on final edits prior to submission.
