About Elizabeth

Elizabeth J.M. Walker has always loved books and writing. For over a decade she made the litzine 398. She is the author of the books She Dreamed of Dragons, This Night Sucks, Slip Jig Summer, The Boy Who Owned the Forest (with illustrations by Nicholas Beckett), and Cindy's Satin Slipper. Elizabeth used to do the journalism thing for windsoriteDOTca and published over 150 articles with accompanying pictures, but "retired" from that when she started working at a pet store. She also enjoys writing scripts for Windsor Dance eXperience and is usually part of their production team.


Elizabeth spent many of her childhood, teen, and early adult years in dance classes and theatre productions, but admits she was never particularly great at it. She would still be dancing, if she could find the time. Instead, she often writes about dance. Or spaceships. And one day she'll finish that book that has dance stuff AND spaceships. One day.


She lives in Windsor, Ontario with her husband Alexander (who apparently has a Wikipedia entry) and their dog and two cats: Daisy (aka the Gibber), Callie (aka Cal-Zel), and Dune (aka Duney or That Demon Who Lives in the Basement).


She goes by Beth. Not Liz. Beth. Oh, and she includes the J.M. in her name not because she's pretentious, but because there are a whole bunch of other Elizabeth Walkers out there. There's even one who has a PhD and writes books. That's not this Elizabeth Walker. This Elizabeth really does have two middle names. They're both pretty common. Can you guess what they are?
