My first novel, Sin in The Big Easy (Post Hill Press, 2018), has garnered praise for a ‘refreshingly flawed heroine’ with a ‘page turning read.’ After, working this project for over a decade and through various transformations and an MFA, I finally learned to have more fun with the story and the words started to flow and come together in a legal thriller in one of my favorite places: New Orleans.
Here’s what critics have to say:
“McCourt’s absorbing tale evolves from a deceptively simple courtroom drama to a dizzyingly complex thriller. . . An engaging mystery that readies a charismatic and savvy protagonist for her own series.” Kirkus Reviews
“Elizabeth McCourt has created such a compelling legal thriller the stakes are high. Very high.” Lou Ann Walker, Author, A Loss for Words
My new book-in-progress is about the non-linear path to leadership, because I’m a passionate in helping people realize that utilizing the culmination of our experiences is essential to unprecedented success. My rule is this: Even though we know the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, by embracing non-linear thinking will have an opportunity for our greatest growth breakthroughs.
