Liz has had more than thirty books for middle grade readers published, including the JUNIOR LIFEGUARDS series, the CALLAHAN COUSINS series, and many of the titles in the CUPCAKE DIARIES and forthcoming SPRINKLE SUNDAYS series (writing as Coco Simon) and in the DEAR KNOW-IT-ALL series (writing as Rachel Wise).
