Elizabeth was born and raised in Elmhurst, IL the oldest child of two professional artists. A humanitarian at heart, she found herself continually committing to projects to help others. In 1996, she started a small nonprofit organization that worked with mothers that had been diagnosed with postpartum mood disorders, called the Mother Balance Foundation. She also became involved in animal rescue, fostering and helping to adopt dogs through Chicagoland Shepherd Rescue.
Writing is a passion that has held her heart for as long as she can remember, and when asked she will tell you that there is a constant string of ideas and dialogue running through her brain. She credits her parent’s love of reading and encouragement to be a free thinker for her ability spin her ideas into stories that leave the reader breathless and blown away.
Currently Elizabeth lives in Lombard IL with her husband, five children and three German Shepherds. She works full time at a private school for children with Autism and loves every single minute of it. She spends her free time writing, dreaming up new ideas, and vacationing at her cabin in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
