About the Author

 

Elizabeth McKague has a Master of Arts degree in English and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from
San Francisco State University. She is the author of nine novels, twelve chapbooks and one screenplay.

I have been writing for 45 years, since I was 9 years old. I have a M.F.A. in Creative Writing and a M.A. in English from San Francisco State University, and I also studied in the Poetics Program at New College of California. I am a zealous reader, partial to 18th, 19th and 20th century French, Russian, German and British literature. I think that part of the reason why I write a book is because it needs to exist and personally, I really want to read it! I half-jokingly believe that the artist is like a puzzle with one piece missing, perhaps stolen by an unseen power and this individual will then spend the rest of his/her life creating works in an effort to try to get that piece back. I’ll confess that I am a hopeless romantic and my works often display that stamp.
