Elizabeth Aden lived two years on a remote island in Melanesia where she was the only white woman among 2,500 natives. She earned her PhD in Biomedical Anthropology studying the natural history of Hepatitis B. She learned two languages and lived without running water or electricity. She leveraged what she learned there into a successful career as a SVP of a major Swiss pharmaceutical company and independent Board member. Elizabeth’s swashbuckling adventure, HEPATITIS Beach, will be published in 2023/2024. Her time in the pharmaceutical industry introduced her to the promise of using an individual’s DNA/genetics to tailor prescription medicines. Her debut medical thriller, The Goldilocks Genome (January 2023), introduces personalized medicine, or pharmacogenomics, to the general reader. Elizabeth has recently published three new cozy mysteries – Dune House, Slay Bells and A Vacation to Kill For – written by her award-winning godmother, Eunice Mays Boyd, 50-70 years ago.
