May I introduce myself: Elizabeth Conte, women’s fiction writer, creating beauty for the mind!
“My goal is to bring what I love about 19th century literature–deep characters, true romance, beautiful imagery, meaningful dialogue, and rich stories that linger in the heart–and bring it to the 21st century reader.“
I like books that are layered, unique, clever, thoroughly developed…and romantic. Much of what I love about writing came from 19th century writers like Jane Austen, the Bronte Sisters. Edith Wharton, Henry James, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. They were my inspiration to create, literary romance, bringing what I love about classic literature and transforming it in a style that will appeal to modern sensibilities. I want to bring stories to escape into, fascinate the mind, and linger in hearts.
My goal for writing is to bring beauty into the world. When I say beauty, I don’t mean pretty or attractive, happy or cheerful. I mean the ethereal quality of beauty that pleases the intellect or moral sense. I want to uplift the mind, the soul, the inner part of humanity, and inspire how one chooses to view the world. Connecting to the imagination and escaping into the creative stimulates the emotions positively, connecting us to our humanness. That is beauty to me, and what I hope I bring to the writing world, and to readers.
