Elizabeth BriggsElizabeth Briggs is a full-time geek who writes books for teens and adults. She plays the guitar, mentors at-risk teens, and volunteers with a dog rescue group. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and a pack of small, fluffy dogs.

Elizabeth’s debut novel, FUTURE SHOCK (Albert Whitman & Co, March 2016) is a Young Adult Sci-Fi. A Latina teenager raised in Los Angeles’s foster care system with an eidetic memory is recruited by a tech company for a mission – a trip 30 years into the future.

 

Fun facts:

  • Favorite book growing up: All of Christopher Pike’s books. She devoured them!
  • Childhood aspiration: To be an FBI agent, until she realized she can’t handle blood and switched to wanting to be a writer.
  • Favorite time of day/place to write: Late afternoon, in her bed, with a dog or two snuggled up next to her.
  • Book currently reading/most recently read: TWIST by Karen Akins – SO GOOD!
  • Favorite things to do (other than reading): Procrastinating, going to concerts, plotting world domination. Wait–uh, watching TV. Yeah.
  • Favorite sports teams: What is this “sports” thing you speak of?
  • Surprising personal fact: She never learned how to ride a bike.
  • Greatest thing about being a 2016 debut author: See above comment about world domination. Oh, and connecting with other authors and readers. That’s good, too.
