Elizabeth Dulemba was beamed to this planet with a pencil in her hand. Once she stopped chewing on it she began to draw and write stories for children. She is now an award-winning illustrator for "Highlights Magazine" and of several picture books including the bilingual Paco and the Giant Chile Plant, which won a Moonbeam Children's Book Award Bronze Medal.

She illustrated Glitter Girl and the Crazy Cheese, The Prince's Diary, and three books in the ParentSmart KidHappy™ series. Her latest picture book is The 12 Days of Christmas in Georgia for Sterling Publishers.

Along with creating picture books, Elizabeth is highly active in the writing community.
