Elizabeth de Veer

Elizabeth de Veer grew up in Virginia and currently resides in Georgetown, MA. Her first novel, The Ocean in Winter follows three sisters and their separate lives after the loss of their mother. The sisters grew up in Amesbury, but move far away from each other. One lives on Plum Island, one lives in New York, and one lives in India. They all come together after inheriting a house in Newbury. 

de Veer found inspiration through the house hunting process that she went through with her husband when they found their Georgetown home roughly 13 years ago. Particularly with the historic homes that are found in New England, de Veer always wondered who previously lived in them. "The houses are connected to the stories of the people," de Veer said, noting that she hopes readers in the Greater Newburyport area will recognize the local backdrop of the book and connect with it in some way. 

She holds a master's degree in theological studies from Harvard Divinity School and has been admitted to writing residencies at Jentel Artist Residency, the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences, and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.

De Veer participates in several writing groups, including the Newburyport Writers' Group, Grub Street Writers’ Collective of Boston, Sisters in Crime New England, and the New Hampshire Writers’ Project.
