About the Author
Late-bloomer Elizabeth "Liz" Moore Kraus enrolled in college at forty-two and six years later earned her M.A. in English Literature. After a much beloved teaching career of twenty years, she retired from Ventura College in 2019. During Liz's many travels, she has kept journals, all becoming placeholders in her bookcase. COVID and five jigsaw puzzles later, Liz had no other choice but to take her most recent journal from the shelf and write this memoir, her debut book.
