All About Barbara Elsborg
Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.
After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.
Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they are to write.

I think the question I’m most asked as an author is – where do you get your ideas? Since I mostly write erotic romance I’m never sure whether the questioner is asking about sex or just generally. Of course, if it’s where do I get my ideas about sex – it has to be from my wonderful, sexy, super-stud husband. (Has he stopped reading?) Good, and Google. Where would I be without Google. I would hate anyone to investigate my browsing history. I don’t deal with icky things in my stories but I still need to know what they are. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
But for everyday parts of my tales, my inspiration is from the world around me. An episode when I got stuck in a malfunctioning self-tanning booth made it into one story – I dripped home a coffee colored mess on one side of my body. The issue with the life raft inflating INSIDE the boat – yes, based on me and fact. But my imagination is the most useful tool. I once stood at the kitchen window and wondered what I’d do if a space ship landed in the garden. Husband said – you’d die. He’s Mr. Sensible. My version –I’d go into space with the hunky if inept pilot and have zero gravity sex. Well, I didn’t tell my husband that bit.
And for my upcoming book with Samhain – well that was inspired by a trip to Walmart. The store that has everything needed for survival, right? You’ll have to wait until September to see if Zoe, my heroine, survives her late night visit to Supa–Mart.

I’m always delighted to hear from readers, especially if they aren’t asking me for money.

Keeping an eye on his charge isn’t easy. Keeping his hands off? Impossible… It took attending his own funeral to force Logan to accept a new life as an undercover MI6 agent. That doesn’t make his latest assignment any less aggravating. Babysitting a Russian pop star with delusions that someone’s trying to kill him. Other [...]

I live in Yorkshire, in the UK, a few miles from the village of Cottingley. The village is famous for pictures taken in 1917 by two local schoolchildren. Frances and Elsie took photos of what they claimed were fairies at the bottom of the garden at the side of Cottingley Beck. One of their fathers [...]

I don’t know how many times that was thrown at me when I started off in this business. I mostly write erotic romance and what do I know about threesomes, sex toys, guy on guy sex and kink? Nothing from personal experience. Cough. Of course, I know plenty about red hot sex with the guy [...]
