Meet Liz Griffin, an engineer by day and a fantasy & science fiction writer by night. In February 2017, she underwent a 9-hour emergency brain surgery, so these days she likes to break up awkward moments by joking “Come on, guys, it’s not brain surgery” at every available opportunity. She is an advocate of the Oxford comma, a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady, and a Ravenclaw. When she’s not studying for the Professional Engineer exam, she is currently writing a young adult fantasy series which she describes as An Ember in the Ashes meets Aladdin, but with a murder mystery. You’ll be inspired by Liz’s NaNoWriMo achievements and long-term writer goals. You’ll also love the many resources Liz mentions that help her improve her writing skills, build her author platform, and work toward her writing dreams. Let’s get to the interview, shall we?
