Liz is a Florida girl - born and raised in the Sunshine State. Her career path has spanned from physical to fiscal to literary starting in nutrition, then riding the roller coaster we call the stock market as a financial advisor and ultimately penning her first book at age 49. Before meeting her husband and marrying in 1992 Liz lived in New York City and Los Angeles. In 1995 she had a child but fear and impatience with unpredictable earthquakes in California motivated her to move back to Florida in 1999 - just in time for that y2k scare...
Liz' debut novel "Who Got Liz Gardner" was published in April 2009 as the result of an international contest and is now enjoying tremendous popularity in book clubs around the world. Book Two in the "Liz" series - "Discovering Arugula" was released January of 2011. Liz's most recent release is the twisted dystopian tale "Ima Pigg" which has been described as "Charlotte's Web" meets "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". Available on Kindle.
Currently, Liz is proud to be a contributing writer for "The Menopause Minute", the monthly newsletter on Redhotmamas.org - a national organization by and for women headed for or into "the change".
Liz lives with her husband, daughter and Catahoula Leopard dog. Her unrealized dream is to ride horseback across the fields of Provence for one week. In the meantime, she rides dressage occasionally and goes to Epcot. She practices her high school French when she orders crepes.
In the year 2031, following an Agricultural Meltdown, meat is the enforced food option. Growing carrots is illegal. Eating salad is a misdemeanor. Serving it will get you jail time. Most humans adapt to the mostly meat diet, but it’s hard on underground vegetarians. And for animals, it’s murder. Even the family dog is game, if he strays too far from home.
In this sequel to her critically acclaimed first novel "Who Got Liz Gardner", author Elizabeth Allen cleverly takes us back to the moment when Eric Alexander gets Liz. Then she proceeds to send the reader on a courtship ride with more spins, twists and corkscrew turns than the Coney Island Cyclone. By story's end, you will be breathless, white-knuckled and lining up to go again!
Liz, a financial advisor and happily married mother of one, joins a high school website and enters a chat room (undetected) filled with male classmates she knew thirty years ago. There she witnesses a testosterone-laden dialogue leading to the question " who got Liz Gardner?" This world wide circle jerk catapults her into into a review of her life and the choices that led to the "one who got her".
