    About "Elizabeth Ducie"

    1. Elizabeth Ducie

      I was born and brought up in Birmingham As a teenager, I won a holiday to France, Spain and Portugal for writing essays and poetry in a newspaper competition Despite this promising start in the literary world, I took scientific qualifications and spent than thirty years as a manufacturing consultant, technical writer and small business owner, publishing a number of pharmaceutical text books and editing a technical journal along the way I returned to creative writing in 2006 and since then, I have written short stories and poetry for competitions and have had a few wins, several honourable mentions and some short listing I am also published in several anthologies.Under the Chudleigh Phoenix Publications imprint, I have published two solo collections of short stories and co authored another two I also write and lecture on business skills for writers running their own small business My debut novel, Gorgito s Ice Rink, which was published in 2014, was Runner Up in Writing Magazine s 2015 Self Published Book of the Year Awards In August 2018, it received a Chill With A Book Award My second novel, Counterfeit , was published in 2016 It is the first in a series of thrillers set in the sometimes murky world of international pharmaceuticals It came third in the Literature Works 2015 First Page Writing Prize The second in the series, Deception , is out now on pre order and will be published on 3rd September.Having left Birmingham to study in London, I lived for than twenty years in Wilmington, Kent In 2007, I moved to the South West of England, where I live with my husband, Michael, in a converted granary sited picturesquely on the banks of, and occasionally within the path of, a small stream In 2012, I closed down my technical consultancy in order to concentrate full time on my writing In 2012 I graduated from Exeter University with an MA in Creative WritingI am the editor of the Chudleigh Phoenix Community Magazine, a monthly online newsletter and for five years, I ran the Chudleigh Phoenix Annual Short Story Competition I am a member of the Chudleigh Writers Circle and one of the organisers of the annual Chudleigh Literary Festival I am also a member of Exeter Writers I spend far too much time on Facebook and Twitter, but have met some wonderful members of the writing community as a result.When I am not writing, I am a keen reader and singer I am a member of two local choirs I also enjoy live theatre of any kind, share with my husband a love of fine dining, and am a real sucker for the kind of country house hotel where you can kick off your shoes and curl up with a book in front of a log fire I would like you to believe I am also a keen walker, enjoying the beauties of Dartmoor and the South Devon coastline but, as a writer, I m good at making things up.
