Prize #5 - Free Web hosting:

Elizabeth Pina

Elizabeth says: "I live in Texas, am married, and have four children. The youngest is sixteen and the eldest thirty-something ; ) Which puts me in my VERY late twenties …

I have a full-time job plus a bunch of dogs, livestock, and 4-H projects. I’m always busy, but find as much time to write as possible.

Thanks to wonderful help from friends such as you, Tracy, my writing has improved dramatically over the last twelve months and I now have a full (Inspirational Contemporary Romance) out with an agent and editor.

Life is good, and God’s blessings often found in the strangest places.
