A graduate of the University of Illinois, she has worked in advertising, community journalism and as a freelance magazine writer. She feels incredibly blessed to have a career that allows her to spend her days imagining “what if?” and a loving family that keeps her grounded in the real world.
An adventurous cook, vintage home enthusiast, occasional actress, and entry-level figure skater, Elizabeth makes her home in the Midwest, where life is good, but the sports teams aren’t. She loves to hang out on her front porch, or at her favorite local establishments, enjoy good food and wine, and talk writing with anyone who will listen.

Ever crave a romance novel with a dash of different? Maybe it’s set in a place you’ve never been, or features characters you’ve not read about often—if ever.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a reader marching to a slightly different drummer. If Regency-set historicals are all the rage, I can’t get enough medievals. Everybody loves dark Alpha heroes, right? Make mine beta, please. An icy sports romance with a sexy skater hero? I love it…but instead of passing the puck…could he be landing triple axels?
“If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it.”
Toni Morrison’s great quote perfectly describes my state of mind during Labor Day weekend, 2009. After an idyllic reading summer that rekindled my love for romance, I knew just what I wanted to read--a love story between a sheltered, well-born girl and a young hero, not unlike the Artful Dodger from Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
When I couldn’t find a book that hit my sweet spot in quite the right way, I wrote one.
That was the beginning of my journey as an author, and almost seven years and four books later, I’m still following my quirky muse into different-land. In 2015, my debut contemporary sports romance series Red Hot Russians, was published by Carina Press.
Writers are often advised to write what we know, and one of the most common questions I’m asked is whether I write about things I’m familiar with. The answer is ‘no.’ My experience as a features writer turned me into a bit of a research geek, and I’d much rather write about what I’d like to know. There’s something really satisfying about finding the great little details that bring an unfamiliar world to life.
Romance with a dash of different that offers a fun break from the everyday. Those are the stories I love to read…and the ones I love to tell. I hope you enjoy them just as much.
Coming April 4th from Elizabeth Harmon!
Figure skater Mikhail “Misha” Zaikov once had it all: medals, money and the adoration of millions. But a devastating injury put an end to his career and his romance, leaving him with nothing but regret over what could have been. His last chance to re-join the world’s top skaters is now. And there’s only one person who can help him: Her.
On Russia’s unyielding ice, Misha must reclaim what he's lost while facing off against a talented young rival and risking further injury. But Amy soon discovers Misha's much bigger challenges lurk off the ice. And she's determined to keep Misha whole and healthy, even if doing so ends his shot at the gold.
