E.M. Barnes

Born into a family of readers, actors and drama lovers, Elizabeth moved to Australia when she was fourteen, because her mum promised her a pony*. A professional copywriter, editor and marketing content creator, she spent her life thinking she couldn’t write a book. She was wrong. After raising three kids and spending years making up bedtime stories, in January 2023 she finally decided to start writing – now she can’t stop. Hunting a Queen is the first instalment in the Pureheart Legacy series. Elizabeth lives in Perth with her partner Emma, two dogs, two bikes and a ton of triathlon gear. When she’s not dreaming up new worlds, you can find her swimming, running or cycling along the beautiful Western Australian coastline. *Her mum never bought her a pony.
