Let's Talk Liz.
Boonville, Missouri born and raised, Liz Rau now resides in Colorado. As an avid and passionate supporter of the performance arts community, Liz’s background and hobbies include dance, choreography, theatre and writing. With six nieces and nephews, she often considers her role as an “Auntie” as one of her greatest pleasures in life. She also dotes on her two cats, one of which is black & fluffy…perhaps the real-life inspiration for Hanks? Liz also find inspiration through Judy Garland movies, Christmas lights, music, rainy days, daydreams, and of course, good old fashioned people watching.
When she set out to write, she started with topics that fascinated her - like the Salem Witch Trials. But then, she started writing more of what she, herself, wanted to read. Cozy, magical, mysterious and romantic novels that kept the reader entertained.
