Meet The Author

Elaine Cougler is the author of historical novels about the lives of settlers in the Thirteen Colonies who remained loyal to Britain during the American Revolution.

Cougler uses the backdrop of the conflict for page-turning fictional tales where the main characters face torn loyalties, danger and personal conflicts. Her Loyalist trilogy: The Loyalist’s Wife, The Loyalist’s Luck and The Loyalist Legacy.

The Inspire! Toronto International Book Fair selected The Loyalist’s Wife as a finalist in its Self-Publishing Awards. The Middlesex County Library selected the book as its choice for book club suggestions. The Writers Community of Durham Region presented Elaine with a Pay-It-Forward Award. The Loyalist’s Wife 2nd ed. received the Chill With a Book Readers’ Award and The Loyalist’s Wife/The Loyalist’s Luck was awarded a Discovering Diamonds Award.

Elaine has led several writing workshops and has been called on to speak about the Loyalists to many groups. Through her website she writes a blog about the writing and reading world and more. She lives in Woodstock, Ontario with her husband. They have two grown children.
