  1. Good morning Liz,

    While browsing in “My PRX” I found your name in my Visitor “Footprints.” Couldn’t find any info on you in PRX. So, I “googled” you. Upon my arrival here, I discovered you had 0-comment-responses…so I thought I’d be the first!



  2. Liz Humes is a phenomenal interviewer. She makes you feel comfortable, asks great questions, and READS the book you wrote!!! Yeah for a great interviewer right here in my hometown.
