Liz Carmichael

Biography

Author, editor and illustrator.

Enjoyed writing since early school years. Took my first writing course when my children started school - writing for children, of course. Life got in the way for a number of years, but the nag persisted which led me to acquiring my Dip.Art (Professional Writing and Editing). I then taught writing and editing for two years, until I had to get back to my own writing - life was bleak without it.
