About the Author
Elizabeth Deese is an assistant teacher at an elementary school in Belmont, North Carolina. She has worked with EC children, AIG students and in a regular classroom as well as teaching in the computer lab for over 16 years. She has the unique ability to make up stories and tell them to the children without writing them down. She just tells them "off the top of her head" as she likes to put it. "The children seem to love my stories. I can't even remember most of the ones I've told over the years. Last year I had a group of youngsters who insisted I write them a special story. I wrote three fairy tales, but my favorite was the mystery story called Mystery at Pirate's Cove. The children encouraged me to publish this book so they could have a copy. This is my first publication, but I hope it won't be my last."
Before becoming an assistant teacher, Elizabeth worked first as a production manager and later a general manager for a successful commercial mailing service. She recalls not liking to write as a child, but as an adult things seem to change and she found she loved making up stories and writing about things that just popped into her head!
