Elizabeth’s second solo release this year for Spoken Realms (following Wonder Tales) is The Experiences of Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective by C. L. Pirkis. These are classic Victorian British detective stories starring “the female Sherlock Holmes.” Right now, the audiobook is available exclusively at Audible, but will release more widely in the new year.
Loveday Brooke is the first female detective created by a woman writer. Catherine Louisa Pirkis published stories about this smart, spirited sleuth in the 1880s, and they were collected into this anthology in 1894. In these tales, Loveday takes on cases involving wayward nuns, missing debutantes, a mysterious princess, and a ghost who resembles Napoleon, among other strange phenomena. Throughout, she is insightful, professional, and simply more intelligent than anyone else around her, indicating that Loveday and Pirkis were both ahead of their time. This collection includes seven stories: “The Black Bag Left on a Doorstep”, “The Murder at Troyte’s Hill”, “The Redhill Sisterhood”, “A Princess’ Vengeance”, “Drawn Daggers”, “The Ghost of Fountain Lane”, and “Missing”.
Elizabeth’s latest release is The First Husband, a novel by best-selling author Laura Dave, recorded for Tantor Audio.

She visits the world’s most interesting places for her syndicated travel column and she’s happily cohabiting with her movie director boyfriend Nick in Los Angeles. But when Nick comes home from a meeting with his therapist (aka “futures counselor”) and announces that he’s taking a break from their relationship so he can pursue a woman from his past, the place Annie had come to call home is shattered.
Reeling, Annie stumbles into her neighborhood bar and finds Griffin – a grounded, charming chef who seems to be everything Annie didn’t know she was looking for. Within three months, Griffin is Annie’s husband and Annie finds herself trying to restart her life in rural Massachusetts.
