Her books have been translated into 37 languages and 3 were turned into television movies. OPEN HOUSE was an Oprah Winfrey Book Club selection and she also appeared on the show with TALK BEFORE SLEEP and FAMILY TRADITIONS. She received the New England Booksellers Association award for her body of work, The American Library Association’s Book of the Year, and was nominated for an ABBY, an award for bookseller’s favorite books. Elizabeth has been honored by both the Boston and Chicago Public Libraries and is popular and entertaining public speaker.

 

Elizabeth was born on December 2, 1948 in St. Paul, Minnesota. When she was 3, her father re-enlisted in the Army and she grew up on bases from Texas to Germany, sometimes attending as many as three schools a year. Returning to this country she worked as a receptionist in a law firm, a waitress, an actress in an improvisational theater group and the lead singer in a rock band. She later attended the University of Minnesota and St. Catherine’s University, where she earned a nursing degree. She says that her 10 years as a registered nurse was her “school” for writing – taking care of patients taught her a lot about human nature, about hope and fear and love and loss regret and triumph and especially about relationships, often the focus of her work.

 

Elizabeth lives in Oak Park, Illinois with her partner Bill, dog Gabby, and cat Gracie.
