When Elizabeth was 25, she was diagnosed with life-threatening food allergies and has nearly lost her life on multiple occasions, once while six months pregnant with her son Cam. These food allergies and stories are documented in her books and children's books.

Elizabeth and her husband, Peter, have been married for more than twenty-five years and have four adult sons, three rescued cats, and two dogs. They can often be found in Maine in their gardens, in the pool, raking leaves, or, depending on the season, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
