Barbara Elsborg


Barbara Elsborg lives in Kent in the south-east of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Volcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.
After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

Barbara's written around fifty novels, a mixture of MM, MMM and MF. They cover a whole range of genres - contemporary, paranormal, suspense, sci fi etc. She likes to write about quirky heroines, bad boys, and weird paranormal creatures, and she hopes her books are as much fun to read as they were to write.

Smashwords book reviews by Barbara Elsborg

  • A Christmas Contract on Jan. 23, 2012

    I'm rather pleased I didn't read this at Christmas! It was very chilling. I begged Santa for presents too. I'm clearly damned - as if my writing erotic romance hadn't already done that! A very well written story that spoke of things I hadn't considered before. And I'm not sure I want to now! Well done.
