Elizabeth has been writing since she was 16 and most recently completed a yin-yang, utopian/dystopian pair of novels set in New Zealand. Dreams of a Family Tree is a genealogy-themed adventure romp and Greyscale is a dark take on the future of farming. Previously, she self-published three music-centric novels set in the UK and US, while a teenage autobiography might never see the light of day. She has a BA in English Literature, a Graduate Diploma in Journalism, and a Master’s in Creative Writing. Born in Whakatane, New Zealand, Elizabeth has lived in six NZ towns, as well as England, Japan and Saudi Arabia. She’s now permanently based in Chicago, Illinois.
