I am Liz Mills - incredibly old, but amazingly still fully functional. I was born of gentle, loving parents in Southend-on-Sea in the county of Essex, England, famous for its pier, shingle beaches and seaweed. I now live in the euphemistically named Three Bridges, in West Sussex, with my writer fiancée Douglas.
My childhood was undistinguished: expelled from posh school for being dim, I found my level in the state secondary education system, emerging with just enough basic skills to enable me to get a job … then another job … then another … and so on. At various points in my life I married and divorced a few times, producing two children, who are now adults and whom I love.
Writing was always a hobby, followed intermittently, until I shook off the shackles of the capitalist slavery system and gratefully accepted retirement. I developed my writing skills by reading and analysing the work of others. From some, I learnt how to write, while others showed me the mistakes to avoid; I am grateful to all of them.
At the age of sixty, as retirement loomed, I reinvented myself. I threw off the mantle that had stifled me for my whole adult life, and discovered, inside, the person I should have been. That person is now Elizabeth Audrey Mills, chatelaine and author of two novels (with another in hand), a science-fiction series for young teens and a book of short stories.
All my books are also available in all e-reader formats through Smashwords, and in paperback through Amazon.

I am a big fan of fantasy and romance. So “A Song for Joey” is not my usual category. But, I stayed up to 2am to finish this eBook because I couldn’t put it. A spicy book that was also very human. It shows the courage of how one can overcome anything with courage, hope, and friends like Joey.

Elizabeth Audrey Mills has done it again. "A Song for Joey," is a wonderful story. If you have ever felt, heard or dreamed of a deceased loved one (which I have), you will appreciate Belinda Bellini as she navigates her challenging childhood with the help of some very special people.
