Who is Mary Bly? Eloisa on Her Double Life

Mary Bly is Eloisa James (historical romance writer) and Eloisa James is Mary Bly (Shakespeare professor & novelist). But… their books are not the same.

You can count on a Happily Ever After from a book with an Eloisa James byline, along with a lush historical setting and a healthy dash of Shakespeare.

Mary Bly’s Lizzie & Dante, however has a contemporary/modern setting, and while it is a love story, it’s not in the romance genre. The heroine is a Shakespeare professor and the hero an Italian (echoing Mary’s own life!); Eloisa’s heroes are mostly dukes, and Mary regretfully admits that she’s never met one. Nor has she frequented a Regency ballroom.

Just to complicate things, Mary did write a memoir called Paris in Love under Eloisa’s byline, although it details the year that Mary went on sabbatical to France, family in tow.
