L M. Elliott

L.M. Elliott was a Washington-based journalist for almost twenty
years before becoming a New York Times best-selling novelist. HarperCollins will release her 9th historical novel for Young Adults in February 2018 titled HAMILTON AND PEGGY: A REVOLUTIONARY FRIENDSHIP--an in-depth portrait of the least known Schuyler sister. Elliott's other works about the War for Independence include GIVE ME LIBERTY, a look at the American Revolution through the eyes of a young fifer in the 2nd VA Regiment.

In September 2017, Hyperion published Elliott's SUSPECT RED, a McCarthy-era story of two teenage boys swept up in the Red Scare's national paranoia and witch-hunts. Elliott is best known as the author of UNDER A WAR-TORN SKY--an NCSS/CBC Notable Book in Social Studies, Jefferson Cup Honor Book, a Bank Street College of Education's Best Book, and winner of the Borders Original Voices Award--and its companions, A TROUBLED PEACE (also an NCSS/CBC Notable) and ACROSS A WAR-TOSSED SEA (a Jefferson Cup Overfloweth title). Her other books include DA VINCI'S TIGER, a bio-pic style novel about Ginevra de' Benci, the young poet portrayed in the only Leonardo da Vinci work permanently housed in all of the Americas; ANNIE, BETWEEN THE STATES, an IRA Teacher's Choice and NYPL Book for the Teen Age; and FLYING SOUTH.

As a journalist, Elliott wrote frequently about women's issues and medical stories, including a nonfiction adult title on domestic violence. She holds a BA from Wake Forest University and an MA in journalism from UNC-Chapel Hill. She is a lifelong Virginia resident and history-lover.
