Books by Elizabeth Horton-Newton
Elizabeth Horton-Newton was born in New York City and was 10 years old in elementary school when President John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. As she watched the events unfold on television she became fascinated. This lifelong interest resulted in her first novel, "View From the Sixth Floor: An Oswald Tale". With the release of her novel "Riddle" she once again tackled a social issue; the illegal adoption of First Nations babies separated from their families. Small town prejudices against people of color and "outsiders" result in a unique friendship between two young people. Weaving a romantic thriller around the issues she creates rich characters in all her writing that draw the reader into their lives. The recently released "Carved Wooden Heart" is her first erotic romance novel. Written with new author Starla Hartless, the story follows a young journalist as she experiences joys and sorrows but never gives up on her dreams. Advanced readers have given high praise to the book which will be officially released on September 24, 2016. With her education in Criminal Psychology, Sociology, and Media Communications she has a unique insight into how criminals think and how society responds to their crimes. Volunteering in local Domestic Violence groups in her hometown she likes to confront social problems in her stories. Elizabeth currently lives with her husband, writer Neil Douglas Newton, along with a collection of rescued cats and dogs in a 100-year-old house. Mother of 4, grandmother of 5, and great-grandmother of one, she is already working on her fourth book "Stolen" where she returns to her fascination with criminals and an overburdened justice system. In addition, she has short stories in several anthologies, one of which in the collection "Twisted Tales", has been compared to Stephen King.
