About Liz Blackmore

Welcome to The Little Box of Books! The idea of writing has been with me since I was in my teens. That was more than a few years ago! Through the years, sidebars took me away from this passion. I just want to clarify that I am thankful for those distractions. I have  learned alot and been provided with loads of stories for the future! It was only during a bit of a lull, that my exceptional spouse of twenty some years, kicked me in the butt and told me to do something with the stories I had written years ago.

The result is my search for a publishing venue, interacting with fellow writers, an overabundance of information and doing my best to stay grounded during this ride.

We currently live in SE Manitoba, sharing our dreams with the menagerie of animals we have either rescued or saved from the reaper. We have numerous grandchildren, of which we do not get to see nearly as much as we like. Life has a way of putting our family in the right spot at the right time, however, no matter how far apart we live from each other.

    • Thank you Wendy. I am ‘guided’ to certain things at certain times. I never know who or what is going to be placed in front of me. It is my pleasure to serve and encourage. We only ask that you take what you need from the encounter and bloom. With more positive output, we can all be thankful for and benefit from the balance we are returning to nature.


  4. Hi Liz,

  6. Hi Liz,

    You have just inspired me to write a series of childrens books based on lessons in life.




  7. Morning, Lee,
    Great, glad to see you became inspired. I have 10 in the series so far, but do not want to share them quite yet.
    Happy writing!


  8. Liz,

    I am glad you came to my corner of the internet. I always thought i would write, but life took down some interesting paths: marriage, motherhood, stuff, and I learned a great deal and hope to use what I have learned to help other moms.

    Please if you do stop by again, leave a comment, or suggestion.


    • I’m glad I came across your path as well! Yes it is funny how life takes you away from your passions, but it is letting us gather information for future fuel!I will stop by again! Thank you for stopping by!

  13. Liz,
    I can relate to your ‘about you blog’ as it is very similar to my own story. I wish you well in overcoming all the little obstacles that are thrown in your way.


  14. Missing your posts, Liz! If you went through with the job change, I hope it’s is going well! 🙂


    • Hi Candace! Missing you too! Man I have alot of blogs to catch up on. I glance at tehm when I can but really need to find the undisturbed time to respond. I really thought your recent post on spiritualty was thought provoking. I have to get over there and comment. The job is going. I will leave it at that for now.
      In the meantime, thank you for dropping a line. Hugs to you.


  15. Hi Liz, I love your introduction. It made me feel as if we are kindred spirits. But then, I think all writers are kindred spirits. So glad you decided to start sharing your stories and sending them out into the world. Thank you so much for taking a stroll through the Cow Pasture and welcome to the fence jumpers! I look forward to reading your comments.
