This site is being set up and run with the help and cooperation of some of the people who have grown to love the talented shy author of a collection of literary gems, most of which go unnoticed by the mass of society today. This she would accept with a humble gratitude, content with the success she achieved in her lifetime

“This site has been established with the support of the Trustees of Elizabeth’s Estate.  The content of the site is, however, the sole responsibility of its contributors.”  Mark Dutton

I hope that this site will to a large extent, be fan based and led.  Let me have any ideas that you have about what you would like to see on this site.
Thanks for stopping by.
