Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author


Elaine White is the author of multi-genre romance, covering everything from paranormal, crime and contemporary. Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. Living vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, she lives comfortably at home with a pack of wolves cleverly disguised as one standard poodle. The Winner of two Watty Awards – Collector's Dream (An Unpredictable Life) and Hidden Gem (Faithfully) – and an Honourable Mention in 2016's Rainbow Awards (A Royal Craving) she has explored the worlds of multiple genres, but remains a romantic at heart. A self-professed geek, Elaine has fallen in love with reading and writing LGBT romance, offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.

I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Blood On The Borders: The Casebook of Dr. Simon Forman - Elizabethan Doctor and Solver of Mysteries

Blood on the Borders: The Casebook of Dr Simon Forman-Elizabethan Doctor and Solver of Mysteries - Judith Cook I bought this book, surprisingly, in the Tourist Information in Oban, when we were on holiday there. I'd forgotten to take a book with me and thought this sounded interesting. Boy was it a good choice.

I'm a big fan of historical novels, especially thrillers. I was utterly amazed that it was inspired by a real life doctor, Simon Furman.

I thought the story, the execution of it and the characters were all of a very high standard, very engaging and intriguing. I was curious the whole way through, and consumed the book in just a few days. The Scotland/England theme, and how it focused on the Borders at such a time, is completely engaging and provides enough chaos, trials and murder for one book, all on its own.

Overall, a brilliant, intriguing story that mixes real life events and inspiration with an engaging, murder mystery of a story.
