PRAISE FOR PASSION SPENT: “Elizabeth Waterston’s book may be just the thing to thrill you and spur your own creative talent.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Elizabeth Waterston is a snowbird from Montreal, Canada, a long-time writer and teacher escaping every winter to palm trees and happiness. She hopes her books bring you a share of the sunshine and smiles she finds in Florida.
