Hi! I’m Liza.

I write children’s books and quasi-depressing essays (I’m going through a phase—apparently it’s called adulthood) At some point I’m going to write a memoir, but I think I should probably wait until I actually do something. I’m thinking a reality show. Either “Project Runway: But You Don’t Have to Sew Zippers” or “House Hunters: Just Joking, We’re Still Renting”.

I have a chemistry degree from Texas A&M University and I started enough small fires on campus it’s slightly alarming I’m not on some sort of watch list. 

In early 2015, I was diagnosed with a rare ocular cancer, so now I’m trying to kick its @$$ and so far, so good. There’s a quote about writers doing everything possible to avoid actually writing and it rings my truth bell. Had the universe not tried to kill me, I wouldn’t have begun writing seriously. And by seriously, I mean in my pajamas at our kitchen counter.

If we’re going to be friends there are a few things you should consider: I write well enough that people ask me for advice, but I’m (now 35!) and have no idea what the hell I’m doing. Also, there is a pile of clothes laying flat and smooth on top of my bed going on 10 days now. I’m thinking of just sewing the clothes together and calling it a duvet.
