  1. Liz has been a dear friend and colleague for a zillion years! When I needed someone to man a desk at an MWA event during Edgars Week, Liz would always step up to the plate! She is one of the hardest workers I've ever known in her excellent steps to win an audience for her talented writing! T. J. Straw
