Elizabeth Guizzetti loves to create. In her mind, she has the best job (or jobs) in the world. She gets an idea, runs with it until it leads her to generate whatever it is going to be.

Over the past decade, she has created over 100 paintings, three graphic novels and a comic book series. Her first novel, Other Systems, was published by 48Fourteen in 2012 and was a finalist in the 2015 Canopus Award for Excellence in Interstellar Fiction. The Martlet is her first novella series. Inspired by her love of classic horror movies and the rise of modern medicine, The Martlet came from an idea that Elizabeth thought was fun. It became a dark diversion from the hard science fiction that was her focus while working on Other Systems.

Elizabeth currently lives in Seattle with her husband and two dogs. She enjoys hiking and birdwatching in her spare time.
