aka Cate Conte

Liz Mugavero has been writing stories since she could hold a pen. Before that, she would tell them to anyone who would listen (not many at the time). After deciding early on she would write books for a living, she practiced by writing bad, angst-filled poems, short stories and even a storyline for a soap opera--all by age 15. She never wavered from her goals despite all the usual questions including, So are you going to be an English teacher with that degree in English? or, That writing thing sounds nice, but how are you REALLY going to make a living?

She went on to get a masters in writing and publishing and spent time in journalism, PR, and presently, corporate communications. And she's confident this writing thing IS the way to make a living.

Aside from writing, she loves animals (has a houseful), the beach, reading other writer's masterpieces and Starbucks coffee.
