Elizabeth George

If you are an avid viewer of the PBS “Mystery” series, the name of Elizabeth George is no secret to you. The Thomas Lynley mysteries are a staple of Sunday night television. However, if you have not read her books for yourself, you have missed one of the greatest contemporary mystery writer’s offerings.

Elizabeth Susan George was born in Warren, Ohio. She is a graduate of University of California in Riverside. She also attended California State University at Fullerton, where she was awarded a master’s degree in Counseling/Psychology and an honorary doctorate of humane letters.

She began her career as an English teacher at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana. Along with ten other teachers, she was eventually fired for becoming involved with union activity. She later taught in El Toro High School in El Toro, California (now called Lake Forest, California). While employed there, she was selected Orange County Teacher of the Year, a tribute in part to the work she’d done with remedial students for nearly a decade. She left education after thirteen and a half years when her first novel, A Great Deliverance, was sold to Bantam Books. «Read the rest of this article»
