Elizabeth Pulford

Biography

Before I became a writer I was a traveller, a typist, a cleaner and an ice-cream girl in a cinema.
Now I live in New Zealand in a small southern seaside town with one extra nice husband who is a king of-all-trades.

We have two children and two grandchildren.

Every morning I go up to my little writing room to make up stories. From this room I look out into a wild plum tree, where I can hear the birds squabbling in the branches.

Writing has long been a passion and sometimes a curse!

I have had over fifty children's books published from the very young to YA with regular publishers. Plus my adult short stories have been lucky enough to win many short story competitions.

But this is a different adventure...one where I am stepping into the e-world. So I feel the need to tread carefully for a while.

I love being creative, be it baking bread or chasing after new characters.
