Elizabeth rocks and is the owner of this wonderful store! We love her, but she hasn't sent me a small bio yet, so please enjoy the following facts: 1) Elizabeth only prints on teal-blue pieces of paper; 2) Elizabeth's middle name is Cassandra--after her great-aunt's pet rattlesnake; 3) Elizabeth will only use Bluetooth keyboards, because she likes the fact that she can't see how the keyboard is connected to the computer. Feels like magic to her. And she loves magic.
Update: Elizabeth Bluemle is the award-winning author of four picture books with Candlewick Press: My Father the Dog and How Do You Wokka-Wokka? (both illustrated by Randy Cecil), Dogs on the Bed (illustrated by Anne Wilsdorf), and Tap Tap Boom Boom(illustrated by G. Brian Karas). She is also the co-owner of The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, Vermont, and blogs about children’s bookselling for Publishers Weekly. Websites: www.
