Biography[edit]

Elizabeth Ann Scarborough grew up in Kansas City, Kansas. She was earned a RN from Bethany Hospital School of Nursing in 1968. She was a practicing nurse for well over a decade, including 5 years as an RN in the US Army, one year of which she served in Vietnam during the eponymous war. Her writing career began in 1982 with the publication of her first novel, following which she entered the University of Alaska, earning a BA Magna Cum Laude in 1987.[2][3] She is still an active novelist publishing at least one novel in every year after 1986, except for 1990, 2011, 2013, and 2014 (in which she published short story collections instead). She now publishes the bulk of her independent work through Gypsy Shadow Publishers.
