I am sure Elizabeth will not mind me sharing the following note she sent through with her story:
"I gave the latest Highlights book to my mother for her 92nd birthday. She loved all of it but has been able to tell anyone who will listen that her daughter is a published writer!"
Read and enjoy Elizabeth's latest travel story A Mountie, Mists and Wine.
Elizabeth has lived in Australia all her life. She is happily married, a mother of two, grandmother of five and devoted assistant to one very bossy tortoiseshell cat named Lucy. Her working career began as a speech pathologist and later morphed into the totally unrelated field of retail management in a university science centre and planetarium.
Travel has always been a focus and yes – there has always been a bucket list. This was brought into stark relief when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and following treatment, a travel timetable began to take shape. Guam was first, followed quickly by European and North American adventures. Illness nudged another long-held interest to the fore and Elizabeth began chronicling her trips with extensive photography, promising herself she would also write about her exploits.
