Author spotlight: Beverley Eikli

8 February 2013

Beverley EikliBeverley Eikli is the author of ten novels (six published and four contracted), writing erotic historicals as Beverley Oakley, and historical romantic intrigue as Beverley Eikli. She recently won UK publisher Choc-Lit’s Search for an Australian Star competition for her Regency romance, The Reluctant Bride, which will be published in March 2014. Beverley lives in a pretty town an hour north of Melbourne with her husband, two daughters and gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback, Homer.

Welcome Beverley to our spotlight …

Have you attended one of ARRA’s events before?

I’ve heard so many good things about it, but this will be my first.

What are you most looking forward to at ARRC2013?

Catching up with fellow writer friends I see only once a year and meeting readers and other writers.

Tell us about your latest book…

I’m on a crazy deadline to finish an illegal diamond-buying romantic suspense called Lammergeier Rock, set in 1960 in the African Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho, where I was born and where my father prosecuted a number of medicine murder and IDB (illegal diamond buying) cases. Hopefully it’ll make Choc-Lit’s September 2013 release list.

What do you have coming up next?

I’m on final edits for an Ellora’s Cave erotic Regency romance called Her Gilded Prison, featuring an older woman and a younger man who form an unusual alliance to prevent an unworthy heir from inheriting the viscountcy. It’s very sweet and sexy at the same. I’m also very excited about my Momentum 15 January Hot Down Under release, Saving Grace, set in 1878 about a prostitute who is sent to service the man she believes inadvertently thrust her into her hated way of life by betraying her after she safeguarded his secret. It’s set to be a busy and exciting year.

Keep an eye out for Beverley’s books and give them a try:

      Thanks, everyone. Just got back from visiting my dad on his farm where I’ve been staying in a cottage with no internet or phone. How we take instant communication for granted! Thanks for all your messages:)

    An interestinng interview, Beverley.

    I love the sound of ‘Lammergeier Rock’. I know nothing about Lesotho, and I can think of few things nicer than plugging that gap in my knowledge in a way that sounds entertaining and exciting.
