Eliza lives in the Ocean State with her Viking-like husband, fantastic daughters, and too many pets. She loves the man and the girls more than life itself, but it pays to give the animals a surfeit of attention sometimes, to keep the humans on their toes.

Besides the above, some of her favorite things are frosting, Chardonnay, men's muscles, baroque music, frosting, and her readers. Yes, she mentioned frosting twice. It was intentional.
