About Elizabeth Jasper

i write general fiction with a twist - my first book, Lying in Wait has a strong thriller element and my second, Meggie Blackthorn, is a nostalgic trip back to the sixties in Newcastle, UK. My third novel, A Bed of Knives, is contemporary romance with an edge. Next is The Golden Cuckoo, a magical adventure story for children 9 - 12. Next comes Meggie Blue, a sequel to Meggie Blackthorn. A third book in the 'Meggie' Series is Jack the Lad, to be published in 2014.

I lead a very quiet life in a very quiet place - if you don't count the goats that rampage past the house several times a day eating any vegetation within reach (so no hanging baskets or tasty plants around the door), mules, dump trucks (the streets are narrow and steep, so no access for cars), local dogs protecting their 5 metre stretch of the street and the feral cats that seem to choose my garden to carry out their romantic assignations - though it is nice when they bring their new kittens round to visit.

Review by: Pam Howes on Nov. 23, 2012 :
I absolutely loved this story. Been dreading finishing it as I know I'll be lost for a while. Fabulous characterization, great description and sense of place, and a superb plot that kept me on my toes. Who can resist the charms of Malachy Flynn? Well not me anyway. Leaving his home in Tralee to make his way in the world, Mal gets involved with the wrong sort and becomes involved in all kinds of thrilling escapades from Dublin to Liverpool, London and Northumberland. There are some real hi's and some very sad lows to this tale that grip the reader and you just have to keep on, one more chapter, oh go on, just one more, matchsticks on the eyelids! The twists towards the end are wonderful and Ms Jasper has woven such a tight plot, that surprisingly, and you'll wonder how she's managed it, all melds together towards a satisfactory conclusion. This is the third book I've read by the author and really look forward to her next. I can highly recommend.

Review by: Jacques Antoine on Nov. 23, 2012 :
This is a good read, (a ripping good yarn, as they say) at times quite gripping, with surprising twists throughout. It's not a typical action-thriller, although it has lots of thrilling moments. It's much more about the moral consciousness of the main character. It also contains a few quite steamy love scenes and a harrowing moment of domestic violence. It tells the story of a young man's inadvertent slide into crime and immorality, and his struggle to extricate himself from that life and the people in it. There are numerous subplots and minor characters that contribute to the rich world of the novel, and these are mainly handled quite deftly. Highly recommended.
