Beth White

Author Bio:

Beth White is a native Southerner, born on the Gulf Coast and reared in northwest Mississippi. With undergraduate degrees in music and English education, plus a Masters in Creative Writing, she has spent the last thirty years teaching fine arts to preschoolers through college students. Besides performing professionally as a singer and flutist, in the last thirteen years she has published (as Elizabeth White) four novellas and ten full-length novels with such publishers as Tyndale House, Zondervan, and Steeple Hill.

Beth’s current and most ambitious writing project to date is the culmination of a decade’s research into the cultural, political and religious development of the American Gulf Coast. A lifelong passion for stories which chronicle the innate human drive for romance, faith, and adventure began when she was still a child. Her favorite books—Walter Farley’s Black Stallion series, westerns by Max Brand and Zane Grey, Samuel Shellabarger’s epics, and Georgette Heyer’s Regency romances—fed a growing desire to write a large-scale family adventure that would tie together six to eight novels in historical continuity, while at the same time provide a satisfying conclusion for each book. The Pelican Bride (Revel, April 2014) launches The Gulf Coast Chronicles with the adventures of a ship full of French mail order brides.

Beth and her husband Scott have two married adult children and one grandchild. Beth teaches piano and chorus at an urban high school in Mobile, Alabama, an occupation which will undoubtedly one day become a story thread in a novel.
