"Reminiscent of Anne Lamott's works, The Elegant Out grapples with the glorious, messy intersection of real life and true art."

Patricia Minger, Author of Magic Flute 

We write to make sense of the world,

                   to heal, wander, tweeze,           

        play, strut, re-wild,

              evolve and rise boldly.

Lauded a "word colorist" with a distinct lyrical style and unflinching strokes, Elizabeth is an award-winning author and editor of influential stories that inspire and engage.

Our Stories Matter. They Make Change. Reclaim Your Voice.
