Elizabeth Blackwood is a lover of stories. The natural world is a big source of inspiration for Blackwood—particularly in the ways people connect with it, or how they’ve become disconnected or severed from it. She likes to explore the concept of memory, both personal and familial, and how that continues to both haunt and be relevant to a present experience, as well as touching upon things heavy and often difficult to deal with, such as loss and grief.
A consummate lover of yarn and all plants, Blackwood lives on a secluded mountain ridge with two rambunctious maine coons, one tired and old tabby, one husband, and probably spends way too much time drawing maps of fantasy worlds and making lists of all the books to write (and read). She is currently back in academics after a decade-long hiatus to pursue a degree in Literature and Folklore.
