Elizabeth Illig is a writer and career coach who writes career-focused romances with steamy key performance indicators. Born and raised in North Carolina, Elizabeth has a degree in counseling and another in English from universities in her beloved home state, where she continues to live with her golden-retriever puppy and golden-retriever-like husband. She owns a private career coaching practice, ghostwrites nonfiction, and teaches college classes. When she’s not working, she reads way too many romance and fantasy novels (bonus if they have elements of both), sips way too many coffees or IPAs (depending on the hour), and tries way too often to run short and long distances (with mixed results). You can find her online at www.elizabethillig.com and on Instagram at @ewalk_illig.
