I Will Not Run, Elizabeth Preston
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 19, 2015
Winter has made up her mind: she will kill her husband. Out of necessity, his death must be long and slow and blame-free. Problem is, as Bruno is dying from steroid poisoning, he will become even more irrational and dangerous. There is much that could go wrong with her plan, but no matter what happens, she will not run. She owes her sweet dead sister that, at least.
Winter’s husband, Bruno, is one of Australia’s wealthiest steroid dealers. Believing that his wife is up to no good, he lays a trap to test her loyalty, and dark family secrets emerge.
When Winter’s former lover, Dominic, a forensic psychiatrist, enters into this turbulent mix, the results are both passionate and catastrophic.

Who first encouraged you to write?
My mother. When she was short of cash, she’d bang out a short story on her old typewriter and sell it to the local paper. Apparently, way back in those good old days, newspapers bought everything you offered, guaranteed.
What inspired you to write this book?
I remember reading about ‘roid rage in the paper and thinking that it would make an excellent condition for a baddie to have. I wrote the first 3 chapters of I Will Not Run at university as part of my writing degree. After that, scary was in my blood. And of course 3 chapters weren’t enough. I had to write on.
What do you think is the most important quality to cultivate to be a successful writer?
Hunger – and I don’t just mean for chocolate. Every book has to be better than the last and you’ve got to want to keep on learning. To succeed as a writer, you have to want it badly.
Elizabeth lives in sunny Sydney with her patient husband and spoilt-rotten rescue dog. I Will Not Run is her second novel.
