Author has written 6 stories for Downton Abbey.

I am neither young nor old and I live in Florida. I woke up one day and discovered I was obsessed with Downton Abbey.

I go by La Lizi, my childhood nickname. My DNA is Mexican and German, so, I also go by ChileKraut.

I ship Anna/Bates and anything I write will likely include one or both of them. Because of my love for these fictional characters, I adore Brendan Coyle and Joanne Froggatt, whose superb acting led me on to this path of becoming a fangirl. I am a slow writer because of RL, but I always finish what I start. :) I will never leave a story unfinished.


The lovely cover art for my story, Come Fly with Me, I owe to the wonderful Joanne Froggatt who happened to tweet a picture of herself in front of a helicopter while I was writing a helicopter story!! I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by. Because I cannot do anything digitally artistic (ie photoshop), my friend HAVEYOUTRIEDCOCAINE from TUMBLR was gracious enough to adapt it to my story and I wish to thank her for a job well done! She added the dashing Brendan Coyle to make the image better. Thank you!!
