Elizabeth Scott

Elizabeth is the author of Bloom (Simon Pulse/Simon & Schuster, Spring 2007) - ISBN: 1-41-692683-6


Elizabeth Scott grew up in a town so small it didn’t even have a post office, though it did boast an impressive cattle population. She’s sold hardware, pantyhose, and had a memorable three-day stint in the dot.com industry, where she learned that she really didn’t want a career burning cds.

She lives just outside Washington DC with her husband, firmly believes you can never own too many books, and would love it if you visited her website, located at elizabethwrites.com

Book: Bloom
bloom.jpgLauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl lusts after. So why is she so unhappy?

It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: she’s been holding back. She’s been denying herself a bunch of things (like sex) because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the “right” thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect guy?

But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can’t see herself in— and as Lauren’s craving for Evan, and moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all the more fierce—Lauren realizes she needs to make a choice…before one is made for her.
