Barbara Elsborg

Biography

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 nearly forty novels, most of which are erotic romances but she has also written two dark suspense novels. Her books feature quirky heroines, bad boys, and sometimes paranormal creatures and she hopes they 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.
