Elizabeth is the author of two novels, All Stories Are Love Stories (HarperCollins) and An Uncommon Education (HarperCollins), as well as Ultrasound, a book of poems. She is a three-time nominee for the Pushcart Prize and has twice been honored by the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Foundation. She is also a Stanford Continuing Studies instructor and the founder of Scriblore, an editorial service dedicated to growing both the writer and the work.
Elizabeth was born just outside of Boston to an immigrant Jewish father and a converted Irish Catholic mother. When she was 21, despite never having been any further west than Pennsylvania, she bought a one-way ticket to San Francisco and never quite found her way back. She now lives in Northern California with her husband and three children.
