Windy City writer Elizabeth Marx brings cosmopolitan flair to her fiction, which is a blend of romance and fast-paced Chicago living with a sprinkle of magical realism. In her past incarnation she was an interior designer--not a decorator--which basically means she has a piece of paper to prove that she knows how to match and measure things and can miraculously make mundane pieces of furniture appear to be masterpieces. Elizabeth says being an interior designer is one part shrink, one part marriage counselor and one part artist, skills eerily similar to those employed in writing.
Elizabeth grew up in Illinois and has also lived in Texas and Florida. If she’s not pounding her head against the wall trying to get the words just right, you can find her at a softball field out in the boonies or sitting in the bleachers by a basketball court. Elizabeth resides with her husband, girls, and two cats who’ve spelled everyone into believing they’re really dogs.
Elizabeth has traveled extensively, but still says there’s no town like Chi-Town.

I liked this book, though, was a bit confusing at being a compendium. Because it begins with the story of The Seer but it’s abruptly interrupted by sections that explain the world of ExtraOrdinary. While it’s essential information for those who has read All’s Fair in Vanity’s War, for someone who have not already read it yet, those part are a bit boring. But is compensated by the continuation and the promise that you will read more about the characters in All’s Fair in Vanity’s War.
Still, attracted me enough to buy All’s Fair in Vanity’s War.
