Elizabeth Rose, born in India, lives and works in Galisteo New Mexico. Since emigrating from England on the last day of 1985 to start anew on the first day of 1986, Elizabeth made her career as a sculptor. Though she had never written anything beyond a journal, in 2008 she joined the SouthWest Writers in Albuquerque to hone her writing craft in order to rewrite her father’s military memoirs. She put away her chisel and picked up her pen. Writing is her passion. To build her resume, Elizabeth entered literary contests in diverse categories and has achieved ten SWW awards to date.
