Stephanie Elmas is an exciting and fresh new voice with a keen interest in 19th century literature. She completed a Masters at King’s College London, gaining a distinction in her dissertation on Victorian sensation fiction. It was her university research that inspired Stephanie to set her first novel between two time-frames, weaving together narratives set in the 1890s and the modern day. THE ROOM BEYOND gracefully unravels one aristocratic family’s secrets over a century, exploring the mysterious worlds of ancestral homes, Victorian medicine men and even love. It is available to download on Amazon Kindle.
With one of the characters from the first book as her protagonist, Stephanie followed up with her second novel ILLUSION. Also set within a Victorian world of gothic mystery and magic, it was published by Lume Books in 2017.
Stephanie lives in Surrey with her husband and their three children.
