According to her mother, Liz has been reading voraciously since the moment she figured out that those little squiggles on the page meant something. Owner of The Learned Owl from 1983 until 2013, after having dozens of jobs in dozens of places all over the country.
Liz reads mostly fiction, but all kinds - thrillers, women's fiction, mysteries. Some favorites over the past years (and still worth reading) include The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay, The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch, Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn, Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (young adult), Run with the Horsemen by Ferrol Sams, Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea (reading level), Lottery by Patricia Wood, The Help by Kathryn Stockett, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay, Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man by Fannie Flagg, The Turtle Warrior by Mary Relindes Ellis, and Kill Me by Stephen White.
Liz says: Author of The 500, a LizPick last year. Again all about the stock market, and full of interesting information about how decisions are made! Quick and easy thriller, perfect for enjoying on vacation.
Liz says: I don't know how it happened that Michael Koryta wrote 10 books before I read even one, but the GOOD thing is that I now have 9 others to catch up on. Those Who Wish Me Dead is a gripping thriller that manages to shine a spotlight on both the worst and best of the human race, with an unbelievable twist or two thrown in. Heading now to the bookstore and the library to get the rest to see me through the summer.
