The Twelfth Heart
Elizabeth writes books for young adult (YA) readers. Her titles include: A Saint in Brown Sandals (winner of the 2006 Macmillan Writer’s Prize for Africa)(Macmillan Education, 2010), and The Twelfth Heart (winner of the 2010 Burt Award for African Literature, Ghana) (Kwadwoan Publishing, 2006); In 2002, her novel, Lea’s Christmas, was short-listed for the Macmillan Writers Prize for Africa (Senior readers). The most surprising thing about Elizabeth isn't how successful she’s been in writing competitions, but that she juggles writing with a full-time job as a Clinical Biochemist, running a medical laboratory practice in Adabraka, Accra, Ghana, and a full-time job as a wife and mother! She lives in Accra with her husband and three children.
