Elin Gregory lives in South Wales and works in a museum in a castle built on the edge of a Roman fort! She reckons that's a pretty cool job. It certainly provides more than enough inspiration for her writing.
"The button from a military jacket found in an orchard, a 16th century Venetian coin found between the cobbles of a Welsh street, a carnelian from a Roman signet ring – one can't handle them without wondering who lost them, how much they regretted it and what kind of disaster was sparked off by the loss."
Although Elin usually writes on historical subjects, she has also written contemporary and historical paranormals, science fiction, crime and a Western, none of which have, as yet, been published. She likes her heroes hard as nails but capable of tenderness when circumstances allow.
Elin's first published stories appeared in the British Flash and Tea and Crumpet anthologies produced by the UK Meet team. Her historical novella, Alike As Two Bees, was published in March 2012 and her first novel "On A Lee Shore" in december 2012. Elin still can't quite believe it. However, there are always new works on the go and she is currently finishing a novel set in 6th century AD England and contemplating one about the British Secret Service between the two World Wars. Any excuse to buy more books!
Elin mostly writes but enjoys drawing as well. She also reads avidly and writes reviews for the Speak Its Name website.
