"She who Shines like the Stars" from Tolkien's Elvish.
(Read the full story behind my online handle here!)
Elizabeth Amy Hajek (as her in-laws pronounce it: “Hey Jack, get off my lawn!”) is a renaissance woman, both in her love of Tudor England, and her vast array of hobbies. After a long period of indecision in which she explored independent filmmaking and learned that English Majors have to dissect too much poetry, she settled down to a life of trying every artistic, culinary, and crafting experience she could get her hands on. In addition to writing about magical folk, she runs a variety of sewing related enterprises, and can be found blogging about costuming adventures at www.seamstressconfessions.blogspot.com.
Fibromyalgia, endometriosis, bilateral hearing loss and Aspergers make life interesting, and dependence on God a necessity.
She lives with her husband (Nathan), daughter, and dog in Minneapolis, MN, where they survive long, cold winters by playing lots of really complicated tabletop games and attempt to keep Elizabeth’s book collection from taking over the house.
Her first book, "The Mermaid and the Unicorn" was released on August 15th, 2016. She is currently at work on the sequel.
