I’m an Edgar-nominated  novelist. I write under the names Libby Malin (humorous women’s fiction) and Libby Sternberg (women’s fiction and teen mysteries) and Elizabeth Malin (serious fiction).

My books have received many lovely reviews, but here are a few clips I particularly like:

For Fall from Grace (by Libby Sternberg, general fiction):

  • “…a novel for our times…” Midwest Book Review

For Death Is the Cool Night and Lost to the World (by Libby Sternberg, historical mysteries):

  • “This volume collects two well-crafted novels by Sternberg… Blending operatic drama, sumptuous description, and noir, Sternberg gracefully puzzles out her tormented characters’ actions and motivations in each book.” Publishers Weekly

For Loves Me, Loves Me Not (by Libby Malin, humorous women’s fiction):

  • “The love story is charming and will be appreciated by any woman with bad taste in men who somehow inexplicably ends up with Mr. Right.” Washington Post
  • “A whimsical look at the vagaries of dating… an intriguing side plot adds punch and pathos to the story…” Publishers Weekly

For Sloane Hall (by Libby Sternberg, historical fiction, a retelling of Jane Eyre):

  • “An original story with complex character development…(Sternberg) knows how to tell a story and she does it well….a refreshing tale.” Bronte Studies journal
  • “Libby Sternberg’s intelligent and intriguing Jane Eyre reimagining has achieved two of the most difficult goals in a novel: being a page turner and paying a worthy tribute to Charlotte Brontë’s immortal story.” – The Bronte Blog
  • “Sternberg never loses sight of the story she’s re-telling, but this novel is definitely her own. Readers have things to figure out and look forward to. Her prose flows beautifully with vivid descriptions of people and places, bringing to life a Los Angeles of times gone by. Fans of historical fiction and Jane Eyre in particular will relish this novel, and readers who enjoy a love story should definitely pick this one up.”—Fresh Fiction
