Liz is a Florida cracker - born and raised in the Sunshine State. Her career path has spanned from physical to fiscal to literary starting in nutrition, then riding the roller coaster we call the stock market as a financial advisor and ultimately penning her first book at age 49. Before meeting her husband and marrying in 1992 Liz lived in New York City and Los Angeles. In 1995 she had a child but fear and impatience with unpredictable earthquakes in California motivated her to move back to Florida in 1999 - just in time for that y2k scare...
Liz' debut novel "Who Got Liz Gardner" was published in April 2009 as the result of an international contest and is now enjoying tremendous popularity in book clubs around the world. Book Two in the "Liz" series - "Discovering Arugula" was released January of 2011. Her short story "Radiance" was published in the 2009 winter edition in Literary Magic Magazine and also in the anthology “Wisdom of Our Mothers”.
Liz's most recent release is the twisted dystopian tale "Ima Pigg" which has been described as "Charlotte's Web" meets "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". Available on Kindle.
Liz lives with her husband, daughter and Catahoula Leopard dog. Her unrealized dream is to ride horseback across the fields of Provence for one week. In the meantime, she rides dressage once a week and goes to Epcot. She practices her high school French when she orders crepes.
She will not ride Mission Space.
