Elizabeth Stevens Omlor likes to notice life's little, quirky details.  They make her feel warm and fuzzy inside. So does writing and illustrating for children. 

Elizabeth lives in a tiny, two-bedroom house in a small town in Northern California with her husband, two kids, two dogs and two cats. Despite what it may seem, her favorite number is not two.
