Meet the Author

Liz Kazandzhy (kah-zahn-JEE) graduated from BYU at the top of her class with a degree in Human Development. When people asked her what she would do with that degree, she always replied, “Develop humans, of course!” and she’s been doing that ever since. In her writing, parenting, and other pursuits, her ultimate goal is to help others develop into their best selves.

Professionally, Liz has worked as a book reviewer for Kirkus Media and as a top-rated freelance editor, specializing in nonfiction genres such as self-help and religion. But as much as she loves reviewing and editing books, her real passion is writing them. She also enjoyed hosting the podcast Latter-day Saint Book Nook and hopes to start a new one soon.

As for her personal life, Liz grew up in Fort Collins, CO, and served a mission in Kyiv, Ukraine. She plays several instruments, trained guide dogs for the blind for 10 years, and enjoys web development as a hobby. She and her husband Vlad currently live in Utah with their three daughters.
