Lillian (aka Liz) Trotta began drawing early in life. By the age of four she was making up rhymes and stories. Today she combines her talents to create picture books and middle reader fiction. A former painting teacher, an award winning painter and a freelance artist, she illustrated two picture books, Tilly Trout's Adventures and Tilly Trout's School Days, for Van Johnson Enterprises. She also wrote and illustrated a children's activity book, Air-Fun-Antics, for Eastern Airlines. She has written one middle reader mystery and completed dummies for two of her ten picture book stories; "Jungle Rhubarb" and "Cornelia Jean - Garden Queen." She has a BA from Florida State University, plus two years study at the Chicago Art Institute.
