Elizabeth is a deaf writer, activist, and feminist living in London with her husband Daniel and their cat Coco, short for Chocolat. She has been blogging for thirteen years, and an arts and culture journalist since 2011.

She writes non-fiction essay collections, poetry, and fiction. Her love of fiction and non-fiction has inspired her to write the stories that are missing. She enjoys writing about the mysterious, the weird and the unexplained.

A self-described bookish geek, foodie, and film fan, she loves nothing more than curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea, book or film and a cat or two for company.

At this time of year, when the nights are longer, and the air turns bitterly cold, after the festivities of Christmas and New Year when the pretty lights are taken down, it is easy to sink into sadness, depression, or anxiety for the year ahead. After the excesses of the festival season, January seems lean, bleached of colour. In the past, it has been a month to ‘get through’, to ‘survive’ – a...

Fragments by Elizabeth A. Ward
"A fun exploration of self and identity

Transport yourself into the mind of someone else. This well written book uses a collection of very personal and impressively honest stories to reach out to the world and say I'm here and so are you. The author..." Read more of this review »

“We define ourselves in different ways, according to culture, family, peer group, and world-view. By what we enjoy doing, and what we don’t enjoy doing. By what we’ve experienced, and what we would like to experience. It all comes together to form the basis of ‘us’. Losing your compass, your passion, meaning, or purpose—could lead towards pain or towards discovery.”
Elizabeth A. Ward, Fragments: Essays and Philosophies

“Imperfection is beautiful and a necessary aspect of human nature. Perfection is impossible. What should we strive towards instead? A greater understanding of and the growth of ourselves and the people around us is rooted in accepting imperfection, even celebrating it.”
Elizabeth A. Ward, Fragments: Essays and Philosophies

“The beginning is always today.”
Mary Wollstonecraft

“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”
William Blake

“Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot.”
Neil Gaiman, Dream Country

“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
Mortimer J. Adler

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
