In her personal essay blog Nestless and Restless, enjoy Elizabeth’s wry observations on her journeys to explore and re-discover her two homelands and beyond.

Before focusing on writing, Elizabeth was a language teacher, ran a small business, and worked for a non-profit supporting entrepreneurship. She has lived and worked on three continents but is happiest when she is in, on, or beside the Atlantic Ocean.
