About Lizzy Ford

I breathe stories. I dream them. If it were possible, I'd eat them, too. (I'm pretty sure they'd taste like cotton candy.) I can't escape them - they're everywhere! Which is why I write! I was born to bring the crazy worlds and people in my mind to life, and I love sharing them with as many people as I can.

I'm also the bestselling, award winning, internationally acclaimed author of over sixty titles and counting. I write speculative fiction in multiple subgenres of romance and fantasy, contemporary fiction, books for both teens and adults, and just about anything else I feel like writing. If I can imagine it, I can write it!

I live in the desert of southern Arizona with a pack of spoiled dogs!

My books can be found in every major ereader library, to include: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Kobo, Sony and Smashwords.

Review by: Mike White on May 09, 2016 :
This story raises a lot of interesting implications about being a comatose person. The author does a good job of exploring what it means to live like this, especially over an extended period of time. Oddly enough, the nostalgia that the protagonist experiences is fairly universal, despite the unusual nature of her tragic circumstances.

I really liked this book I only wished it were longer. I liked the character Rosie and her courage to live with her condition. I thought the concept of how she was able to retreat into her self to a place called the mind cafe was very interesting. I also liked that people came to visit her as they die. I felt it was really sad that she was stuck there and she could only watch as family and loved ones came and went.

An interesting view on what happens to those who are comatose, and how they spend their time. It's good, though I don't particularly like how it ended.

Review by: Sarah (Workaday Reads) on June 30, 2011 :
Rosie suffered a tragic accident as a young woman, and was left as a living vegetable. She can't move or talk, all she does is sit and think. The Mind Cafe is a place she has created in her mind where she talks to her loved ones.

Reading this, I was fulled with overwhelming sadness. Rosie's story is never fully revealed, but what you do learn is tragic. Rosie has been a "living vegetable" for decades. Her sole wish is to die, and yet she lives, year after year.

The story mostly revolves around conversations with visitors within the Mind Cafe. These were emotional, and felt like real conversations.

This is a very short story, and quick read, but the emotions stirred up will stick with you for a while. This is definitely not a light-hearted read, but still one you should check out. I will definitely be reading the other stories the author has written.

"Dialogue was naturally flowing and enjoyable. The descriptions were perfectly on time, just enough for you to visualize and build upon in your own mind, without slowing the pace...."
