She is the author of several award-winning children's nonfiction books, including Generation Fix and Will it Blow? Elizabeth resides in Portland, Oregon, with her family, and this is her debut book for Houghton Mifflin. Liz keeps a four-inch-high scale model rover next to her computer as a source of inspiration while writing this book. Spirit and Opportunity have been roving Mars for more than six years, and the model rover has tipped over and broken so many times that she can't believe they've survived.
