I'm Elizabeth Preston, and I live at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I'm working on my PhD in Rhetoric and Composition (think writing mixed with philosophy), and I teach freshman English. I'm constantly writing, researching, reading, teaching, or fishing (hey, a person has to have hobbies). This blog is about the tribulations, jubilations, and contemplations of me trying to break into the literary and screenwriting worlds, finish my education, and enjoy life while attempting to stay sane.
