About Eliza


 “For the wondrous robes of the fairy land, and for gifts from the fairies plead … mantles of dark blue, like a beetle’s back they shine, and a brooch shone bright with good red gold in each mantle’s fold …” 

A.H. Leahy: Heroic Romances of Ireland

Eliza Redgold is based upon the old, Gaelic meaning of her name, Dr Elizabeth Reid Boyd. English folklore has it that if you help a fairy, you will be rewarded with red gold. She writes fiction as Eliza Redgold and non-fiction as Elizabeth Reid Boyd. She is represented by Joelle Delbourgo Associates US.

Eliza Redgold’s historical fiction includes her Ladies of Legend trilogy, starting with “NAKED: A Novel of Lady Godiva” released internationally by St Martin’s Press New York. Her ‘Romance your Senses’ series of contemporary romances are published by Harlequin (MIRA) Australia and her Victorian historical romances are published by Harlequin Historical (London). She is still tempted to write more!

As a non-fiction author and academic, Dr Elizabeth Reid Boyd co-authored the acclaimed Body Talk: A Power Guide for Girls (Hachette Livre, now also available as an e-book).

OUT NOW in 2017 from Skyhorse Publishing New York is The Secrets of Mindful Beauty with Jessica Moncrieff-Boyd. These revolutionary techniques in anti-ageing and self-care will change how you look and how you feel – forever.

Also in progress is a non-fiction book about the spirit of romance and how you can transform your life with a forgotten fairy tale philosophy.
