Elizabeth Adler Biography – About the Author

Elizabeth Adler author

Elizabeth Adler, aka Ariana Scott, was born in Yorkshire in Northern England in 1950, where she also grew up. After she married her husband, Richard, over the years, they lived in several countries, including Brazil, Ireland, Spain, France, Canada, and the USA.

Elizabeth Adler began her writing career in 1985 when she wrote her debut novel, Private Desires, also titled Leonie, which is a romantic story. This debut novel launched her successful writing career. With two novels, she also wrote as Ariana Scott.

Many of her books in the romance genre feature some of the author’s traits and habis, such as being a romantic person, loving food, and travel.

In fact, travel plays an important part in the author’s research process. To do the best research, she loves going back to places she’s been years ago, to see if they are the same as she remembers them. Also, since she loves history, historical romances are easier to write, which is what she started initially writing back in the day.

Some of those places that Elizabeth Adler discovered in her travels actually feature in her novels, including Venice, Capri, St. Tropez, Capri, Monte Carlo, Malibu, as well as the sunny Tuscany. When you read the Elizabeth Adler series and standalone works, you actually feel like you are there, even if you have never traveled to those parts of the world at all. Also, her current home, California, is the setting of several of her books.

Some of the author’s main characters, including Mac Reilly, Sunny Alvarez, and Malibu PI, are loosely based on the traits of her husband. He has been supporting Elizabeth throughout her entire career as a published author.

Currently, Elizabeth lives in the US in Palm Springs, California with her husband and her daughter, Annabell. So far Elizabeth Adler has written over 30 books.

When writing new books, Elizabeth Adler first edits her previous pages and then sits down to write new ones. Her books are mostly traditional, classic romantic-suspense novels, with somewhat gentler stories than books by other authors like Iris Johansen, Allison Brennan, or Catherine Coulter. However, some of the author’s newer books are a bit on the darker side. For example, Last to Know, published in 2014, deals with deranged killers and psychopaths.

Elizabeth Adler’s characters are always fully fleshed out, and the tension can be felt in the entire novel. There is tons of suspense in her books, along with love, romance, and mystery. Her books have been published in over 25 countries and have sold tens of millions of copies worldwide. Some of her novels include recipes that the author has made at home as foods or desserts.


  1. Better Than Revenge, 2019

    I haven’t been able to find this book on Amazon and the libraries don’t have it either. Does anyone know anything about this book? I don’t think it was ever released.

  2. Elizabeth Adler was my school friend & we lived close to one another I have visited her in California & we always send a birthday card/message as there is just one week between us. I am concerned as I seem unable to contact her. Any info would be appreciated

I feel like I’ve travelled to all these wonderful destinations due to her thorough descriptions and she makes me feel like I’m actually there.
