You found me. And here I am.

I am a writer. It’s the very heart of me, and has been since I could hold a pencil in my hand. And this site serves as the hub for my freelance work and my passions. Here you’ll find examples of what I’ve published both professionally and as part of my love for books. I’ll grab any opportunity to interview an author. Writing is also what keeps me sane.

LitzyDitz came to me as a passion project of sorts—my love of books and sharing great suggestions with friends. After launching my blog here, I moved it to ChicagoNow.com for a few years, and now am circling back to keep all my book reviews in one spot.

As for family — I have three grown (?) kids, along with a husband, two really demanding cats and a reactive black lab that scares the crap out of everyone. And they all tend to need my full attention at the same time. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything, except maybe another MSU basketball championship.
