Elizabeth James

Elizabeth James has been an avid fan of Young Adult fiction ever since she picked up her first ‘Sweet Valley High’ book at the local second-hand bookshop. Now, over twenty years later, she has come to terms with the fact that if she hasn’t grown out of reading about teenagers experiencing the ups and downs of adolescence by now, she probably never will.

Elizabeth holds a Masters degree in Creative Writing from RMIT and her past experience working as a house mother at a local boarding school has provided her with a unique and authentic voice. She is dedicated to writing realistic and contemporary fiction that captures the heartbreaking and hilarious day-to-day life of the modern teenager.

When she’s not glued to her thesaurus and reference books such as ’1001 Baby Names,’ Elizabeth spends her time freelancing in production and casting, and working as a copywriter and editor.
