Elizabeth performs the role of Marilla Cuthbert in L.M. Montgomery’s beloved classic Anne of Green Gables, which has been released by The Online Stage and is available at Audible. Narrated by Susan Iannucci, and performed by a full cast, this is the first in a series. The next book, Anne of Avonlea, is currently in production – with Elizabeth as Marilla – and will be released later this year.

Anne Shirley is an 11-year-old orphan adopted by a middle-aged brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. They had wanted to adopt a boy to help with their farm on Prince Edward Island in the fictional town of Avonlea. Matthew persuades Marilla to give Anne a chance. Anne is a handful, and they fall in love with her.

Elizabeth’s latest release is Book #4 in the Ginger Gold Mystery Series by Lee Strauss: Murder at Feathers and Flair, now available at Audible. The previous books, all narrated by Elizabeth, are also available: Murder on the SS Rosa, Murder at Hartigan House, and Murder at Bray Manor.
It’s 1924, and war-widow fashionista Ginger Gold’s new Regent Street dress shop, Feathers & Flair, is the talk of the London fashion district, attracting aristocrats from Paris to Berlin to Moscow.
Ginger is offered her first job as a private detective when her sister-in-law’s stage actor friend goes missing, and though the dress shop takes most of her time, Ginger takes the case.
But when a Russian grand duchess dies at the shop’s official grand opening event, Ginger ignores the missing person to chase a killer. It’s a decision she will live to regret.
Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Crashing Together, the second book in the Silver Bay romance series by Amelia Judd. Elizabeth also narrated A Venture of the Heart, Book #1 in the series, last fall, and it has received multiple five star reviews at Audible. “The narrator was fantastic and the story is swoon worthy,” as one listener writes.
Determined to hide a fear too embarrassing to admit, recently evicted Kat Bennett accepts an impromptu offer to crash with her brother’s best friend and player extraordinaire Logan McCabe. When things heat up between them, spitfire Kat decides to embrace temptation rather than fight it. A steamy fling might be just the distraction she needs from her own problems. And who better to fling with than a gorgeous Australian who’s only in the country for a few months?
Logan loves his no-strings-attached lifestyle. Or at least he did until Kat, a woman he has always been attracted to but vowed not to touch, moves in with him for the summer. Even though getting to know beautiful, fiery Kat heats his blood and shoots his relaxed vibe to hell, Logan is determined to keep his word and his hands to himself.
But Kat plans to prove some promises are meant to be broken. Will living with Kat for the summer convince Logan it’s time to start playing for keeps, or will their unexpected love crash and burn?
Elizabeth’s latest release is The Bronte Sisters: A Collection of Poems, produced by Voices of Today and released by Spoken Realms. Elizabeth reads Charlotte Bronte’s poems, while Amanda Friday performs Anne Bronte and Eva Davis is Emily Bronte. You can listen to a sample of this recording at Audible.
While the novels of the Bronte sisters are much beloved, their beautiful works of poetry often go unnoticed. This collection contains all their poetical works, pieced together by Charlotte, who provides illuminating commentary on her dear sisters’ words.
The collection was first published under the names Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell.
Elizabeth’s latest Audible release is the second book in the Shards of Excalibur series by Edward Willett: Twist of the Blade. The first book in the series is already available at Audible: Song of the Sword, which has garnered very positive reviews. The remaining three books in the series will be released over the course of the summer. This wonderful Canadian YA fantasy series is a unique twist on the old Arthurian stories of Merlin, the Lady of the Lake, and the powerful sword Excalibur.
Having saved the first Shard of the sword Excalibur from Internet mogul Rex Major (aka Merlin), Ariane and Wally are on the lookout for the second. Wally is worried that the power of the first Shard is already changing Ariane, giving her the strength to do good and evil, and when she badly injures his bullying sister, Flish, it seems he’s right.
Meanwhile, they have a serious problem: Ariane’s located the second Shard in France. Sure, her inherited powers from the Lady of the Lake enable her to travel magically through fresh water, but it hasn’t escaped their notice that there’s a huge saltwater ocean separating them from their next target. And Rex Major is already on his way there.
As Major uses Wally’s doubts – and his secret wish to be more than just a nerdy sidekick – to cause a rift between the friends, Ariane takes the chance to go it alone. But if the first Shard’s power is barely controllable, how will she fare when two Shards are united? And what can Wally do to get his friend back?

Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves is a collection of half a dozen short stories.

The shadows are on the wall, in the heart and clouding a woman’s memories while tangible foes tramp through the physical landscape.
