Bio:  From the time she learned to read to the present, Liz has always had a fascination with books.  As a child she remembers reading Little Golden Books instead of napping.  And, oh, the first time she read a romance – The Thornbirds – she was hooked.  She ate up the SuperRomances on the shelves of her aunt’s used bookstore, borrowed her grandmother’s Boons and Mills Medical Romances (loved those nurses’ caps) and snuck her dad’s westerns so she could read the “romantic parts” (which lasted about a page).  She inhales books, no doubt about it.

Of course, it never occurred to her to write one until her college roommate said, “You read so many of those things, why don’t you write one?”  The idea stuck and several years ago she did it! Instead of just reading those SuperRomances, she’s writing them.

Liz serves as President of NOLA Stars and also blogs on the 2009 Golden Heart blog – She loves strawberries, fishing, retail therapy (especially at Target), and she’s a Virgo.  Liz married her high school sweetheart and has two smart, beautiful boys.  When not writing contemporary romances and still editing her historicals, she is usually found working in the flowerbeds or doing laundry.

She has won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award, has been a finalist for the prestigious RWA RITA Award, and has served in varied positions for her local RWA chapter.
