About Liza Gardner Walsh: Liza lives on the coast of Maine with her husband and two young daughters. She is a high school English teacher and has worked as a children's librarian, writing tutor, museum educator, and holds an MFA in writing from Vermont College. She is the author of several books including, Fairy House Handbook, Treasure the Hunter’s Handbook, and Where do Fairies Go When It Snows? Although her books are on a variety of different subjects, at their heart they are about wonder, appreciation, and exploration. The Handbook series aims to get kids outside, exploring nature the way Liza did when she was little, and what she still does with her two daughters and husband on the beautiful coast of Maine. She and her family can often be found making tiny houses for fairies, mice, trolls, and other small creatures while also making forts and other natural installations in the woods. Her mission is to help families connect with each other, the natural world, and make lasting memories of a magical time in childhood.
