Authors get to play God when writing a character. We shape them, give them characteristics to make them memorable, and ultimately control their destiny. Elizabeth George knows this well, and takes the role of God seriously when writing her mysteries.

If you love a good mystery but aren’t familiar with her work, allow me to introduce you to Elizabeth George. She’s The New York Times and internationally best selling author of twenty British crime novels featuring Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his unconventional partner Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers. Her crime novels have been translated into 30 languages and featured on television by the BBC. Her latest novel, Something to Hide, was released on January 11th.

How did she transform herself from a HS English Teacher to a bestselling author? How does writing and creativity help her in managing depression? What important lessons did she learn from early failures? Listen in as we cover all of this as well as a spine tingling story about the Universe bringing Elizabeth together with someone who needed her in her life. 

Happy listening!
