About the Author
Elizabeth Caperton-Halvorson has lived in the Minneapolis area for 30 years. Raised in Virginia, her experience as a newcomer began with her marriage to a Minnesotan--and nearly ended when she realized she had worn her winter coat through the entire summer the first year she lived in the Twin Cities. She and her family soon discovered the exhilaration of Minnesota skiing and the joy of sailing Lake Minnetonka by moonlight, and she now looks forward to the cycle of the seasons. She has worked as an elementary school teacher and newspaper reporter, and is currently a writer and editor of corporate communications. Her family's hobbies revolve around art, bridge, gardening, and sports.
