Welcome! I’m glad you’re here!

I read and write mostly middle grade fiction – and occasionally picture books – using the penname Elizabeth Starborn. The name Starborn reminds me that we can all shine as stars in our own way, and that’s what I want to show readers in my books and on this website.

My books aren’t yet published, so you won’t find them on shelves yet. I’m working toward the day when that will happen. In the meantime, I read a lot of other books, and share some of them on this website.

In my writing, I hope to help kids you’ll find what makes them truly come alive. Whoever you are, I hope you’ll celebrate who YOU are, deep down inside.

Even if it’s in an unexpected way –

Shine like the star you are!
