Resplendent in her craft, notable historian and self-declared introvert, Elizabeth Camden is an American professional writer with a list of lauded standalone novels and novellas to her credit. Camden is a relatively recent entrant to the book publishing circles. Even then accolades have come hard on the heels of publishing her superb books.

Read on about the personal life of this woman of letters. Meet Elizabeth Camden. Camden’s occupation is research librarian and she works in a Florida-based college. She is an alumna of Trinity University, located in San Antonio upon Texas, where she pursued her Bachelor of Arts degree in History. She then attended University of Virginia where she graduated with a Masters degree (also in history). She is also an alumna of Indiana University; Camden, who is a professional librarian, graduated from this institution with a Master of Library Science. Three things inspired Elizabeth Camden to be a writer: her passion for reading, fervor for history, and her zeal for literature.

Elizabeth Camden: Formative Years, Inspiration, and Early Publishing Career
The inspiration for writing or, better yet, the urge to tweak other writers’ books gnawed at Elizabeth Camden while she was still schooling. She was in third grade by then. She happened to read and got carried away by Charlotte’s Web, a book (juvenile literature) which was written by E.B. White and published in 1952. Camden was chagrined by how author White wrapped up the said book.

To soothe her displeasure, Elizabeth Camden embarked on a mission to rewrite the end, something which also ignited her interest on the disheartening way which other writers ended their books. Unfortunately for Camden, her aims and hopes were hampered by copyright law. This prompted her quest for writing her own books. The characters in Camden’s books are notable for their out-and-out brainpower in the wake of their tricky and challenging circumstances.

Despite her outstanding contribution to literature, Camden’s journey to publishing was fraught with problems. She wrote her first manuscript and submitted to various literary agents in vain. She submitted the manuscript countless times and offers to publish it were hard to come by. She started reading publications which she considered masterly written in a bid to compare and contrast with her manuscript. This made her a self-critic.

Elizabeth Camden noticed that there was nothing to write home about her manuscript, after all; she discarded it and started writing another novel manuscript. Even after writing more manuscripts, it was futile even though she started getting rejection letters. But this did not put a damper on her literary ambitions. All in all, her big break came and she started winning awards and her books have been translated into many languages.

The Lady if Bolton Hill: A Summary
The first book authored by Elizabeth Camden is titled The Lady of Bolton Hill. The first edition of this book was published in April 2011 and it is shelved as historical romance genre. The featured protagonists in this book are Clara Endicott and Daniel Tremain.

This book written by Elizabeth Camden revolves around a fictitious account which took place the late 19th century Baltimore. By 1879, Clara Endicott, who is an American citizen and a print journalist, is an established lobbyist for Londoners languishing in protracted poverty. By the same token, Daniel Tremain has made it in life as he is now a notable industry magnate; he also has many equally influential rivals. Incidentally, the last time Endicott checked, Tremain was merely a poor laborer at a factory.

The reference point is the romantic feelings which Endicott and Tremain had for one another. Unfortunately for them, the woman’s father abhors Tremain’s social background and thus prevents the romance from blossoming. So when Endicott’s work rebound on her and she travels back to her home, Baltimore, their paths cross. What’s more, her life is hanging on a thread by virtue of one of Daniel’s enemy. They are not only angling for rekindling their love for each other, but have also teamed up to fight common enemies.

The pin that burst the balloon is Dobrescu laying a claim to the house which Sawyer’s family hitherto thought as theirs. Dobrescu, who is the new occupant of the said house and a resident of Romania, has definitely relocated to Colden, Massachusetts to stake a claim to what he terms as rightfully his. There is a conflict of interest between Sawyer’s side and Dobrescu, prompting the parties to seek legal redress.

Someone, who Sawyer initially thought was Dobrescu, rummages through the house and gets away with vital papers, prompting her to start sleuthing.
