My name is Elizabeth Christie. I'm the youngest child in a family of twelve in an Irish Catholic family. It was a good day when my parents remembered my name. I decided at five that the best way to secure my spot at the dinner table was to be the family "writer." I wrote my first play when I was six. The play was a meditation on the complex human interactions of the first Thanksgiving. I called this piece "Thanksgiving." This was such a success that I quickly followed it up with a drama about Christmas called "Christmas." I believe this play is in the Guinness World Book of Records for "play with the most amount of 'hellos."
From there, my career took off. I wrote meditations on the nature of being in High School, was the Editor-in-Chief of my high school paper, created narrative non-fiction for Slice Magazine, wrote short journalism pieces for both print and online publications such as Bust Magazine, Radar Online, and was in charge of all copywriting at Erin McKenna's Bakery (formerly BabyCakes NYC).
In the middle of all this, I graduated college, helped open a bakery, moved a few times, had two kids, and got married. So, that takes us through today!
