About Elizabeth  Carlton

Elizabeth "Elli" Carlton began her writing career as a freelance journalist with a knack for finding the soul behind a story. She covered the music beat for two national magazines and multiple local and online publications for four years. However, fiction—her first love—soon steered her in a new direction. In 2011, she took a year off to draft her first novel: The Royal Rogue.

The book was published in October 2012. Unique in its approach, Elli replaces the heroic protagonist cliché with a morally ambiguous rogue who stumbles his way into an adventure of epic proportions. Drawn in by her main character’s rough edges and quick wit, the book swiftly captured an audience.

In 2015, Elli released her second novel, Chivalry’s Code. The book took a bold approach, combining two stories from different timelines into a dueling parallel full of heart-wrenching ultimatums and plot twists. It, too, was embraced by her readers, as was The Rogue Trilogy's emotional third installment, Lost Prince of Nevaharday, published in 2018.

Beyond journalism and novel writing, Elli’s 16-year career includes writing research, marketing materials, and SEO content. She also has provided developmental editing and writing coaching services to individual clients.


She currently works for Gartner where she manages a team of writers and editors supporting global IT and supply chain research.
