Elizabeth always wanted to be an artist. The only time she thought about being a writer was when she bought her first typewriter with money saved from a summer job. Sitting in front of that little electronic marvel made her feel writerly—so much so that she turned out more than a few college term papers that should have been award winners. After graduating, she worked as a graphic artist and later, advertising and creative director. She has also taught middle school and high school.
Somewhere along the way (and probably remembering those awesome term papers), Elizabeth decided to write a novel. Since then, four of her novels have been published.
She and her husband, Don, now live in South Carolina. Since their two daughters and their families live at opposite ends of the world, she and Don, feeling a little lonely, adopted a dog, Tessie Marie, who has grown to be much larger than anticipated and is scared of almost everything—including aluminum foil.
During the summer Elizabeth can be found on the back porch, her favorite writing spot, while winters are spent longing for warm weather. And all year long, she continues to write stories of romance, mystery, and suspense.
