Liz plays way too much Minecraft and dreams about producing a television series. She loves an old-fashioned film noir and takes her coffee with a healthy dose of milk.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! I was incredibly young, and I drew a comic. My parents were really proud of me and encouraged me to keep going with it, because people would love it. (I didn't, because at that pre-k/kindergarten age, I was really into pretty much anything I saw.)
How do you approach cover design?
I have never liked really busy covers, or covers using photos of real people or realistic illustrations. I am a big-picture thinker, so I need something that draws my eye to the entirety of the cover. The realism on some covers begs me to look at the details (and also forces me to picture characters in a very specific way).
