“After the sort of introverted childhood you would expect from a writer, Liz earned a degree in Egyptology at Brown University and then promptly spent the next ten years producing video games. Finally she caved into fate and wrote Snow and Rx under the name Tracy Lynn, followed by The Nine Lives of Chloe King series under her real name, because by then the assassins hunting her were all dead. She also has short stories in Geektastic and Who Done It and a new series of reimagined fairy tales coming out, starting with A Whole New World—a retelling of Aladdin.
She lives in Brooklyn with a husband, two children, a cat, a part-time dog, three fish and five coffee trees she insists will start producing beans any day.”
Ok, so that’s the bio on my cover flaps.
But I’ll bet since you made the effort to come to this part of my site, you probably were hoping for a little more. Right? Here are a few more intimate factoids, in no particular order.
I was born in Birmingham, England.
I grew up in Storrs, Connecticut, which should explain a lot, if you know Storrs.
Although I am an avid plant lover and gardener, I spend most of my time in a Brooklyn apartment that has no yard. DESPITE THAT I grow tomatoes, herbs, cucumbers and peas…and have coffee trees, a cocoa tree, and a meyer lemon.
When the big one comes, I am going to be super popular as the only source of tropical products in North Brooklyn.
I knit, weave, and brew my own kombucha. I do not wear patchouli or burn incense, however.
I have sat in the Voyager’s captain’s chair, as well as the Defiant’s, and also walked around the decks of DS9.
My husband and I first became friends while building a robot together.
I love to ski.
My favorite video game of all time is Turrican II, but that might just be nostalgia speaking. Recent favorites include Journey and Unraveled.
My son’s name is Alexander and my daughter’s name is Ivy and some day they will go to Halloween as Lex Luthor and Poison Ivy, so help me.
