Liz, a.k.a. “DzyMsLizzy” began writing as a child, and it became her preferred method of expression. She was painfully shy in those days, and found speaking in front of people to be very difficult.

Having come from a background whose family read for entertainment, (and in which her father refused to have a TV in the house), words and language came naturally and easily to her.

Since then, Liz has shaken the scourge of shyness, and has performed on stage with a comedy improvisation troupe (the source of her pen name); hosted a live cable-access TV show; as well as having scripted, produced, and hosted a video documentary.

In addition to writing, she enjoys the great outdoors, photography, playing in water, inline skating, karate, and yes, nearing seventy, would still climb a tree, given the chance.
