Lizbeth Selvig writes fun, heartwarming contemporary romantic fiction for Avon books. Her debut novel, The Rancher and the Rock Star, was released in 2012. Her second, Rescued By A Stranger was a Romance Writers of America RITA® Award nominee. Liz lives in Minnesota with her best friend (aka her husband Jan), a hyperactive border collie named Magic and a gray Arabian gelding named Jedi. After working as a newspaper journalist and magazine editor, and raising an equine veterinarian daughter and a talented musician son, Lizbeth entered Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart® contest in 2010 with The Rancher and the Rock Star (then titled Songbird) and won the Single Title Contemporary category. In her spare time, she loves being a first time grandma to Evelyn Grace as well as to hike, quilt, read, horseback ride, and play with her four-legged grandchildren, of which there are over twenty, including a wallaby, two alpacas, a large goat, a mammoth-eared donkey, a pig, three sugar gliders, and many dogs, cats and horses (pics of all appear on her website www.lizbethselvig.com).
