Liz Ireland is a young adult romance, cozy mystery, historical romance, and general romance novelist.

The author grew up in Martins Mill, a little town in East Texas and as a child, all she ever thought about was the rabbits that she used to raise at the back of the house.
She never thought much of reading until Mrs. Sides, her third-grade teacher read a book about animals named “The Yearling” in class and she was hooked.

Ireland then went to San Antonio for high school. After graduating from high school, she got her BFA in theater from Southern Methodist University in 1987.

During her final year in college, she was the winner of a playwriting award which made it possible for her to follow her dream as she ran away to New York City.
In New York, she found employment working as a substitute teacher in publishing and in bookstores. Since she had always loved writing, she used to spend her weekends and nights scribbling away.
She had begun writing while she was a student in college where she used to compose plays after she took a playwriting course. After college, she soon realized that getting a play produced was such a long shot that she pivoted to writing prose.
But it would take about five years before she published “Man Trap” her debut in 1993.

Throughout the 1990s, Liz Ireland penned and published many Western and contemporary historical romances for Harlequin and Silhouette.

In 2001, Kensington Books published “Husband Material,” which was her first long contemporary fiction novel. In the meantime, she decided that she was done with New York and left to go live in Austin, Texas.
Similar to most authors who start writing romance under Harlequin, she began penning short romance works which are very popular with many in the genre.

She began in 1995 with “Cecilia and the Stranger” before she decided to write Western romances. Later on, she added paranormal and contemporary romances to her repertoire.
Ireland would eventually get married to Joe, a man that worked as a software engineer even as she continued to write.

After living for many years in Austin Texas, the family moved to Oregon where they now make their home in a beautiful house full of geriatric pets.

As for her influences, Liz Ireland has said that there are too many to count. Her biggest influence has to be Anne Tyler whose books she began reading when she was in her teens.
She has said that she also owes much of her success to authors such as Anne Lamott, Hallie Ephron, and Lawrence Block that have written some excellent guides on the art of writing.
When she is not writing her novels, she loves reading particularly crime fiction even though she does not have a favorite subgenre.

She usually flits from detective fiction, contemporary police procedural, and golden age sleuths and follows a range of cozy and historical fiction series in addition to psychological suspense.
He has a love for early twentieth-century and Victorian novels even though she also enjoys biographies and history.

When she is not reading, she loves listening to early popular and old jazz music from the 1970s. She also spends a lot of time watching old movies on TV.

Liz Ireland’s novel “Mrs. Claus and the Santaland Slayings” is an interesting novel of the “Mrs. Claus” series of novels.

April Claus is about to spend her first and maybe last Christmas in Santaland if she cannot find the villain with a Christmas wish that involves murder.

Love is something that always comes with all manner of surprises. However, few compare to coming to the realization that you are going to get married to the real-life Santa Claus.
April Claus is deeply in love with Nick her husband but she is finding that living in the North Pole with him is not all candy canes and sugarplums.

Things get even worse when Giblet Hollyberry a cantankerous elf gets bitten by a black widow that had been hiding in his stocking. The bad thing is that he had been arguing in public with Nick only a few days earlier.
Christmas Town has never been known as a hotbed of crime unless you count the few mishaps involving eggnog. Still, April does not agree with the official verdict of accidental death and set out to investigate.
The future of Christmas is now on the line and she can only hope her name will not be on the naughty list which could be very dangerous.

Liz Ireland’s “Mrs. Claus and the Halloween Homicide” is another interesting novel in this series.

For April Claus, every day feels like Christmas since she is married to the real Santa. But then the North Pole is visited by a very different kind of Holiday that brings along with it murder.

For the first time in history, Christmastown is celebrating Halloween, a strange new tradition. However, not everyone is ready to watch their little town get overrun by costume parties and carved pumpkins.
Santaland is hit by several scary happenings with each more intense as compared to the last. April soon comes to the realization that participating in the festivities could cost her life and even that of her friends and family.
But April is not the only one that has been targeted as Tiny Sparkletoe the outspoken elf is found dead outside his cottage sprawled out on the snow. He seems to have been crushed by a monstrous foot judging by the footprint around the body.
Mayhem has been coming down on the town like reindeer and April has to stop the killer before he kills again.

“Mrs. Claus and the Evil Elves” by Liz Ireland continues to follow April Claus, who is about to get an early gift in her second year in Santaland.

Claire her dear friend has come to visit and she is hoping that she can show off Santaland her adopted country at its glittering and cozy best. But soon the annual ice sculpture contest is knocked off the rails by drone deer with a death wish.
This is just the beginning of several no-fun events of the festive season. Drone-deer are the product of Blinky Brigthlow an inventor elf.

They are not too popular as compared to the ordinary hoof and flesh kind that have recently gone on strike. Since they do not have any reindeer to help them exercise Nick thinks they could get too leggy when Christmas comes around.
In the meantime, Blinky has recently gone missing and the lead suspect is Juniper his girlfriend between conniving elves and rogue reindeer the whole palace seems to be going insane.

Sprinkle in some murder and April finds herself fighting not only to exonerate Juniper but also to save her own life.
