About Elizabeth Rawls

Elizabeth grew up within a traveling lifestyle where “home” moved frequently to new places and environments. However, the countries and cultures she experienced, and the people she met along the way, made the lifestyle’s hardship worthwhile and broadened her view of the world—Influencing and inspiring what would be her future work in writing and art. Now, keeping the past within her memory, she writes and illustrates novels, and dabbles in watercolor painting.

"Since the time I was a child and first learned what stories were, I loved them. But reading wasn't always easy for me in the past. Up until 6th grade I would listen to people telling stories and watch TV because I was too slow a reader for books and couldn't keep up with my peers. That changed when, one day, my 6th grade teacher learned of the trouble I'd been having. She told me: "Don't worry about keeping up with everybody else. No one is the same, and no one can always work at the same pace. You just read at your own pace and at a level of reading that suits you." She gave me a child’s version of the Time Machine book to start with, even though it had nothing to do with what we'd been reading in class, because she knew I loved fantasy and science fiction stories.
She explained I should begin with topics that interested me—not the boring stuff class assigns you—and that I could take as long as needed until I finished the whole book. And so, I took her advice and began my strange, new quest of learning how to read a book from beginning to end. Doing this opened the whole world of books into my life and opened up countless possibilities! There were more and better stories than TV had to offer, and I loved it.
Ever since that day, long ago, I have been reading thick and heavy novels, and now, I am publishing books of my own for other readers—both new and old—to enjoy and come to appreciate the art in story-telling that is the book."

Bleeding Heart - A Review

Bleeding Heart is a show of creativity. Filled with beautiful worlds of Elves, Fairies, Dragons, Puppets and more, this book let me into worlds I wish I could experience for myself. For now, I'll stick to experiencing them on the page.

This author is super creative and the poems and stories touch deep feelings. The riddles are clever, and the Hump Day poems put a smile on my face.

Many poems and stories are influenced by the author's experiences in Europe, creating vivid settings.

I own both the print and eBook format of this book and both read very well, though I would prefer to have a book of poetry such as this in print rather than eBook out of personal preference.

I'd recommend this book to everyone.

Excellent, Inspiring. I loved reading this book. The poems were full of depth and emotion. The stories were very entertaining and I read them each several times. The riddles should win an award for their cleverness. How did you come up with those? This is an e-book that I will always keep in my e-book library.
