Historical novelist Elizabeth Hutchison Bernardjoins me today. We’re talking about her new suspense, The Beauty Doctor.
**The Beauty Doctor was just named one of six finalists in the Published Fiction category, 2017 Arizona Literary Contest. Winner to be announced in November!**
Elizabeth began writing her first mystery novel during the summer between fifth and sixth grade. She always knew writing was in her DNA, but she also had a passion for music which ultimately set her on a different course. For most of her twenties, she toured the country as a featured vocalist and flutist. But after nearly a decade of life on the road, she again changed direction.
She earned a Communications degree from Northwestern University (Evanston, Illinois), settled in California, and promoted international expositions for the music trade. Later, in 1997, she moved to New York City where she was Communications and Marketing Director for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and Executive Editor of the internationally subscribed Aesthetic Surgery Journal.
Her in-depth knowledge of plastic surgery lends a unique perspective to her historical novel, The Beauty Doctor, set in New York City in 1907.
Elizabeth currently lives in Arizona with her husband, Bob, and their black Labrador retriever, Pearly Mae.
