Elisabeth Grace Foley (that’s Elisabeth spelled with an S, mind you) has been an insatiable reader and eager history buff ever since she learned to read, and has been scribbling stories ever since she learned to write. She now combines those interests in writing historical fiction. Her short Western novel Left-Hand Kelly was a nominee for the 2015 Peacemaker Award for Best Independently-Published Western Novel. She is also the author of the historical-mystery series The Mrs. Meade Mysteries; a series of fairytale-retelling novellas set in different historical eras; and a variety of short fiction. Her work has appeared online at Rope and Wire and The Western Online. Her latest novella, The Mountain of the Wolf, is a Western re-imagining of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ that originally appeared in the multi-author anthology Once: Six Historically Inspired Fairytales. When not reading or writing, she enjoys music, crocheting, spending time outdoors, and watching sports and classic film. She lives in upstate New York with her family and the world’s best German Shepherd. Visit her online at www.elisabethgracefoley.com.
