Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue.

In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.
When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she woul ... read more

I have been known to go about life without reading instructions. In my not so humble opinion, it is the most sensible way to get things done. The instruction manual is consulted only in dire situations, which are most likely a direct result from not reading instructions in the first place.

I attract ridiculous and crazy adventures. While still in utero, my mom tripped and ended up rolling down a somewhat large cliff at a beach on the west coast. We both shook it off like champs, but random things have been happening to me ever since.

I aspire to write for a living and I'm working, albeit slowly, on completing my Bachelor's degree in Race and Ethnicity with a concentration in Latino Studies. Creative writing is what I originally intended to study. Interestingly enough the genre I love to read most, paranormal fantasy, is not what I write. I'd love to do it just not sure I have enough creativity for that so my specific genre is still evolving although I've dabbled in poetry and some fiction and non-fiction prose. Now to write...

It all began when I was eight years old. I found out that there were books of Tarzan, my childhood hero.

Dreams and legends have followed me from those days, as companions on my voyage through life.
