“Werewolf, Texas” is his second novel.  

Now a Santa Barbara local, Elizabeth Foscue grew up in northwest Florida and the British Virgin Islands. She attended the University of Florida, where she majored in Linguistics and fleeing town on football weekends. She met her (now) husband at a sailing team meeting the second week of school and it was his idea to move to Annapolis, Maryland. She earned a J.D. and LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center before escaping to SoCal after ten years of nasty, mid-Atlantic weather.

A photojournalist for over 20 years, Mike Eliason has also worked as a reserve firefighter for the Carpinteria Fire Protection District, an instructor at SBCC, and is currently the public information officer for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department. He will be signing his book “Santa Barbara and Beyond”.
