Liz Gruder has always held a fascination for the stars. She has degrees in English and Psychology from Tulane University, a nursing license and a yoga certification. Liz lives in New Orleans. After going through Hurricane Katrina, she realized how short life is and is now slowly fulfilling her bucket list: she’s been to the Egyptian pyramids (totally awesome and thought provoking) and is now teaching yoga and writing speculative fiction. Starseed is her debut YA novel.
