I am so glad you found my page! I am an aspiring writer, hoping to someday finish my book. I love sci-fi and fantasy literature, animals, and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please pray for me on my journey towards reaching my goal! Here on my blog I will fill you in on updates as I write and fun topics, including shout-outs to other authors and writing friends who also aspire to accomplish similar goals.

Elizabeth Koetsier lives in West Michigan and has been writing ever since she can remember. (Really, her earliest memory is of turning spelling words into stories, probably in first grade or before.) She loves fantasy and science fiction literature, mythology, Reformed theology, critters of all shapes and sizes, and her crazy cat, Jemma. In the winters, she enjoys drinking tea and crochet, and in the summers she spends time gardening and being outdoors.

So why did I choose the title Ink Lizard? 
No, this is not a play on words...well, not specifically. I happen to just like lizards; I like almost any little critter and that includes reptiles and amphibians (spiders are a big fat no, though). I'm constantly amazed at God's creativity in each of His creatures. Ink has also been a big part of my life. I've been writing since I can remember, and I even think better when I have a pen in hand. I had an image of a lizard with ink on its feet runningand making little foot-marks across a page, and thus, the title was born. :)

Who I Am, What I Do
Welcome to the Ink Lizard! My goal is to make it possible for young and not-so-young adults like myself who enjoy fantasy and sci-fi find good, wholesome literature that is fantastical, adventurous, and exciting, but also shows the value of living life for God in all we do and say.

What do I write about? 
On my blog, I plan to not only share my journey of writing-in-order-to-publish, learning about the writing world, but to also write. On occasion I enjoy sharing serious posts on topics that I am religiously passionate about or just some light ones on things I've learned or am learning. I have more ideas (in the works) for fun things to share, but I'm not quite ready to share with you all exactly what that is... :) (DV, soon though!) (Updated last 3-19-2017)


Things I believe:
1. I believe in Jesus Christ, the third person of the Holy Trinity, as my personal Savior and Lord.
2. I believe we are each given spiritual gifts that are very unique and that can be used for His glory.
3. I believe that creative writing can be God-glorifying and edifying, be not just "fun," but also serve a greater purpose: to inspire others to make Godly choices and model themselves after uprightness.
Things I love to write about:
1. My growing trust in Christ, and His amazing work in my life.
2. Nerd-ish things: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Avengers, cats, tea & coffee, worlds I create.
3. Combining Christianity and fiction together in a way that is both fantastical and God-glorifying.
