Better Know a Bad Girl: Elizabeth Michels

What do you write?
I write fun and flirty historical romance set in England’s Regency Era. My books are filled with quirky characters, shenanigans and pretty ball gowns set against sinister plots in a world where scandal abounds just under the surface of society.

What’s your favorite genre to read?
I love to read historical romance and contemporary romance. I also enjoy women’s fiction and cozy mysteries as an occasional palate cleanser to my normal diet of scandalous love stories. I’ll also read anything else put before me in life like: clothing catalogs, magazines, blogs, cereal boxes, t-shirts and bumper stickers. If it’s words, I can’t help myself. I must read all the things!! LOL

What’s your signature drink?
I love Bellinis!


To make a Bellini:

3 oz. champagne
2 oz. fresh peach puree
Garnish with sliced peaches and enjoy!

What movie scares the bejeezus out of you?
Copycat. Dude…that movie came out in the 90s and I’m STILL scared to go into a large, empty public restroom. The worst? The ones in the movie theater when all the movies are in session–SCARY!!!

What movie makes you bawl?
I’m usually alright until a guy cries. If I see a man cry, it’s all over. Also, any movie containing a letter or message from a dead family member is sure to make me sob. But, these aren’t usually the movies I gravitate toward as I don’t like it when my mascara runs. I’m a bigger fan of summer blockbusters, romantic comedies and epic fantasies.

What’s your fave pair of shoes?
Because I’m sentimental…

favorite shoes

I wore these shoes on one of the best nights of my life: the Maggies ceremony at Moonlight and Magnolias in 2011. That night McGovy placed in the Maggies and we got rowdy at the “fun table.” I danced the night away with my girlz, made great friends and met my fabulous agent. It was a magical evening and I didn’t even mind that the shoes dyed my feet blue for a week after I wore them. My Smurf foot aftermath just added to the awesomeness of the occasion. So, just as a great book goes on the keeper shelf, these blue sparkle shoes are on my shoe keeper shelf for life. Love them!

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me. Leave a comment and tell me about some of your favorite things.

xx- E. Michels
