About the Author
Liz Lee grew up in a haunted house in East Providence, Rhode Island, an experience she's spent the last 15 years both glorifying and trying to forget. After completing a Master's degree in professional writing at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburg in 2012, she returned home to Providence to rekindle her love affair with Rhode Island's delightfully strange people and places, and to find her true calling as a career waitress with writerly aspirations. When she's not writing or serving food to strangers, Liz spends her time at the beach falling off her surfboard, and riding her bicycle around the city, waiting for those fleeting moments in which the breeze and the view and the angle of the sunlight conspire to make it appear that life is perfect just the way it is. Her work has appeared in the Providence Phoenix, Providence Monthly, and Paranoia Magazine.
