The people who only knew Lowell during her childhood might be surprised to learn that she writes romance. Her reading habits were restricted to classic literature.
She discovered science fiction in college after reading her first science fiction novel. In the years that followed, the author slowly expanded her interests, exposing her brain to different genres.
Like so many authors, Lowell started writing fiction out of boredom. A former student at the University of California (Riverside), where she got her English literature BA, Lowell was married to Evan Maxwell.
Evan’s schedule was inconvenient because he worked from 4 in the afternoon to midnight. Lowell spent those hours at home alone with their young son.
Television did not interest her, and after reading every science fiction book the local library and second-hand book store had to offer, she sat down at her desk and started writing a book on her manual typewriter.
Once she finished it, the author submitted the manuscript and then spent the next few months accumulating rejection letters from traditional publishers. But eventually, she sold her first novel, igniting a publishing career that has spanned decades.
The author did not restrict herself to science fiction. She joined forces with her husband to write several bestselling novels. Determined to avoid unnecessary arguments, the couple created a system that started with Evan selecting the setting of each story and writing the first draft.
The pair would work together to iron out the details of the plot and characters. It would then fall to Lowell to write the second draft. She could change whatever she wanted, especially where the pacing and dialog were concerned.
Her foray into romance can be blamed on the advent of the word processor. Lowell was a successful science fiction author when the word processor came along.
Once she added the tool to her arsenal, Lowell’s productivity tripled. Determined to experiment with new genres, she started brainstorming with her agent.
The author read horror fiction and rejected the genre. Then her husband bought Lowell the first romance novels she had ever read. Of the books Evan bought, ‘Corporate Affair’ by Stephanie James was the only novel that won her over.
Having decided to write romance, she bought several dozen novels to familiarize herself with the genre before finally introducing the ‘Elizabeth Lowell’ pen name and using it to publish romance.
In the years that followed, she added historical romance and contemporary romantic suspense to the equation.
Elizabeth Lowell Awards
Lowell has won RT Reviewers Choice, Romantic Readers Anonymous, and Rita Awards.
Best Elizabeth Lowell Books
Elizabeth Lowell is not the author’s only pen name. She uses the A.E. Maxwell name when she collaborates with her husband. Lowell’s best books include:
Untamed: Dominic le Sabre was ready to claim Lady Margaret of Blackthorne as his own. The Saxon bride was his reward, given to Dominic following the glory and triumph he had secured on the battlefield.
But Margaret had no intention of giving herself over to Dominic. It wasn’t her pride that prevented her from yielding to the warrior. Hailing from a tribe of mystics, Margaret feared the ancient curse that threatened to destroy her land.
She wouldn’t bring sorrow to her newfound husband’s bed, even if it meant igniting Dominic’s fury.
Amber Beach: Honor Donovan has no part in the dealings of Donovan International. The family enterprise is a powerhouse in the gem trade, frequently embroiled in conflicts with unscrupulous rivals.
The Donovan males have forbidden Honor from participating in the family business. Initially, she was willing to oblige. But then Kyle, her favorite sibling, went missing. Now, Honor has no choice but to act.
The only person she can trust on her dangerous quest is Jake Mallory. But the fishing guide has a history with the Donovans, and he doesn’t like them. That won’t keep Jake from leading Honor into the Pacific Northwest.
But they are not the only parties on Kyle’s trails. Something’s amiss. New players are emerging, determined to claim a special prize, and they won’t hesitate to kill. Jake cannot protect Honor without discarding his mistrust of the Donovan name.
