Elizabeth Buchan Book and Novel

Elizabeth Buchan - Author


Elizabeth Buchan led a double life for a while as a publisher and author, managing to successfully pursue both careers simultaneously, until in 1994 she became a full-time writer and hasn’t looked back since. Her first novel for adults Daughters of the Storm, was set during the French Revolution. Her second, Light of the Moon, took as its subject a female undercover agent operating in occupied France during the Second World War. Her third novel, Consider the Lily, became an international bestseller and sold over 300,000 copies in the UK alone. Her subsequent novel Perfect Love, was described as ‘a powerful story: wise, observant, deeply-felt, with elements that all women will recognize with a smile – or a shudder’. Against Her Nature was then published in June 1998, critically acclaimed as ‘a modern-day Vanity Fair…brilliantly done’. The Independent on Sunday praised the most recent novel Secrets of the Heart, which ‘recalls E M Forster’s Howard’s End…and celebrates human resilience and flexibility’.

Elizabeth Buchan has also had a number of short stories published in various magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio 4. She is currently on the committee for the Society of Authors, and was a judge for the 1997 Whitbread Awards and Chairman of the Judges for the 1997 Betty Trask Award. Elizabeth lives in London with her husband and two children.
