Lizzie Augustine began making up stories when she was 4 years old and hasn’t stopped since. Since joining the book community via her blog in 2010, she has had the opportunity to work with publishers and authors, and made numerous valuable connections across the community. She is currently studying Creative Writing and English Literature with a concentration in fiction writing at Southern New Hampshire University, where she recently competed in their W.R.I.T.E. Challenge. Her group’s work was selected for publication in The Penmen Review. In her free time, she loves to read, listen to her ever-growing record collection, and play Animal Crossing. She also goes to Disney World whenever she can. Her novel-in-progress, a YA paranormal (working title: ghostie), was written as part of a school writing workshop. She will be attending SNHU’s Master of Fine Arts program, specializing in YA fiction, beginning in January 2023. She lives in Ohio with her Australian Shepherd, Luna, and three indoor barn cats, Cinder, Kai, and Milo Thatch.
