Hey there, I'm Elizabeth. I write young adult novels. I live just outside Washington DC with my husband and dog, and am unable to pass a bookstore without stopping and going inside.

All right, and I can't leave without buying at least one book.

Usually two. (Or more!)

My website and blog are at elizabethwrites.com, and I'm also on twitter, tumblr, and facebook

Let's face it. Blogger went from okay to less okay to awful.

I'm over at tumblr now, and will transfer it over and link to the archives of this blog soon.

“The road whinnies and rears up. The sky gallops.
You are permanent within me in this chaos.
Somewhere deep in my mind you shine forever, without
moving, silent, like the angel awed by death,
or like the insect burying itself
in the rotted heart of a tree.”
Miklós Radnóti, Clouded Sky

“You were. You are
The brightest thing in the shop window
And the most beautiful seldom I ever saw”
Mary Jo Bang

“However tortured the rationalizations we prefer, the thirst of one human being for another can be so--humbling--but I preferred to think of it as fate. And then mad desire. Anything but a fortress built on the back of a whim...How much easier to say there is no coincidence, and certainly no mistakes, and carry on to our destruction in defense of...how shall I put it? My idea of myself. One will sacrifice anything for that.”
Laura Dietz, In the Tenth House

“Try to be thoughtful,
don't make the poor man say it;
see how human he is,
he has children of his own,
it is your job to ask:
Is she dead?

And he will nod and say yes
And now he can never not nod.
And now he can never say no.
And now he can never not say
Kathleen Sheeder Bonanno, Slamming Open the Door

Chelsea hello!
i just wanted to say how much i've enjoyed reading your books so far! I finished Perfect You yesterday and am already almost done with Bloom. It was funny because before reading Perfect You I had just finished Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen and there seemed to be so many similarities in the stories as well as the writing.

message 2: by Tia

Tia I loved your book perefect you, after reading the excerpt of something, maybe in the back i went out and bought it right away! it was great

Lauren Hi Elizabeth! I'm a youth services librarian in Conyers, Georgia--about 20 minutes from Atlanta & am on the YALSA Book Listserv that you're on. Received the copy of Something, Maybe from you yesterday, thanks so much! It's going straight into our collection this week.

Hey! I just finished bloom and I loved it! It was amazing!

message 22: by Anna

Anna WOw thanks for commenting! Talking to my favorite authors is probably the equivalent to a tween meeting the Jonas brothers(aka you made my day). Oh, and I totally enjoyed Bloom! Usually when I come across a character who is a cheater, I tend to dislike them. But it was so hard to not feel sorry for Lauren. She was just so conflicted and messed up from lacking parents (physically/emotionally)in her life. And Evan... swoooooon.

Laura I just read your book Love You Hate You Miss You. It made me cry. It made me laugh. It made me think. Thanks and well done :)

message 32: by Natasha

Natasha Thank you for adding me! So far I've only read "Perfect You" and it was absolutely enthralling. (I'm aware that I'm getting "Living Dead Girl" and "Love You Hate You Miss You" for Christmas). I can't wait to start reading [them:] - they've been tempting me for so long on Goodreads that it seems weird that I'll finally have my hands on them.

message 33: by Amelia

Amelia I just got Something, Maybe form the library and I am really excited to start reading it!!! Thank you for being such a great writer... I started reading Stealing Heaven, but I left it in a locker... It is killing me to not be able to finish it right now...! Happy Holidays!

message 34: by C.M.

C.M. Cahill You're welcome for the add. You are definitely one of my top favorite authors. I've never been into what I call normal books (i.e. ones without anything supernatural) till I checked out Bloom by you at the library and now I'm hooked! So I thank you for writing such great books!

Francesca Hi Elizabeth! I've just discovered your books, and I'll read more of your novels, but it's kind difficult for me to read in English because I'm French.

Thanks for adding me and best wishes!
