Lizzie Socorro is from the South, but is currently living in self-imposed exile in the cold North. She has a dog named Bingley and a cat named Collins, and they hate each other. Lizzie divides her time between trying to keep her hair in check, fighting with her lemon of a dishwasher, and volunteering at her local animal shelter. Lizzie especially loves history and the arts, and anything that brings them together, like historical fiction. She also loves to hear from her readers.
