Elaine was born and raised in Kent and sets her gripping sagas on the outskirts of London. Her first book The Woolworths Girls (Macmillan) was an instant success on publication and has sold more than 50,000 copies.

In Elaine's latest novel, Wedding Bells for Woolworths (Macmillan, March 2020), it's 1947 and the excitement of Princess Elizabeth's engagement is sweeping the nation. In Kent, Freda dreams of meeting her own Prince Charming but so far she’s been unlucky in love. For Sarah, her idyllic family life is under threat with worries about her husband. The friends must rally to face some of the toughest challenges of their lives together. And although they experience loss, hardship and shocks along the way, love is on the horizon for the Woolworths girls...

Elaine is happily married and mad about dogs; she exhibits Henry (her latest family member) at many championship shows including Crufts. She also runs The Write Place creative writing school, which she founded in 2009.
