Elizabeth Kasmer has been an exchange student, a donor attendant, a receptionist, a car park attendant, security shredder and a primary school teacher. She has a BA in Humanities majoring in Philosophy, Literature and Studies in Western Traditions. She has always loved books, frequenting her local library as a child. She was enthralled by CS Lewis, embarrassed by Judy Blume, delighted in Roald Dahl, discovered the secret to ‘Life, the Universe and Everything’ and giggled along with Sue Townsend’s dorky and adorable Adrian Mole aged 13 and ¾. She currently lives on the Sunshine Coast with her husband, three mini ninjas (cleverly disguised as boys), a dog and a snake. Becoming Aurora is her first novel.
