ELIZABETH ARTHUR's latest novel Bring Deeps was published in January 2003 by Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, London; it was issued in paperback in 2004. It is available through amazon.co.uk as are the trade and mass market paperback reissues of Antarctic Navigation.

Arthur was born in New York City, and has lived in Vermont, Wyoming, British Columbia and Indiana. She is the author of five novels - Beyond the Mountain, Bad Guys, Binding Spell, Antarctic Navigation, and Bring Deeps-- as well as two memoirs, Island Sojourn and Looking for the Klondike Stone. Her work has twice been recognized with fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, and in 1990 she was the first novelist selected for participation in the Antarctic Artists and Writers Program, under the auspices of the National Science Foundation.

Her vita provides information about her writing; her bio provides information about her life and the lives of the other writers in the family.

Arthur's work has been published in Canada and England and translated into German, Spanish, and Hungarian.
