Liz was raised in Wisconsin and returned with her husband and children nine years ago. They've been exploring all of the old familiar places and lots of new ones too. She is an avid fan of coffee, tea, and tacos. When she manages to steal free time without a pile of laundry, she knits like a mad woman.
