Elizabeth Brokamp is a licensed professional counselor in private practice. In addition to authoring books, she wrote an advice column called Ask Mrs. Riches for The Motley Fool.
Because she grew up spending time in her mothers indie bookstore, Brokamp developed an interest in literature at a young age. Although she would hold her nose as she ate green peas as a child, Brokamp was inspired to write The Picky Little Witch by her three children, who are also picky eaters.
After earning a BA in English from the College of William and Mary, she received an MA and an EdM from Teachers College, Columbia University. She is the recipient of a Moonbeam Childrens Book Award for Juvenile Fiction and a Moms Choice Award for Juvenile Self Improvement. Brokamp lives in Alexandria, Virginia.
