About Elizabeth Rice
Elizabeth Rice grew up for sixteen years as the daughter of social activist missionary parents in Seoul, South Korea. After working for a number of years in the NGO sector in the U.S. and in Zambia, she began writing about the difficulty of returning to her passport country as a young adult, to a country that was not home, and about the influence of spending her childhood in the developing and industrializing city of Seoul, South Korea. The result, Rituals of Separation, is her first book. She is currently living between Costa Rica and Vermont. Elizabeth has a Master of Public Administration degree and a Master of Arts in Teaching.

Books By Elizabeth Rice
When her American family returns to the U.S. after sixteen years in South Korea, Liz is a hidden immigrant. Her mixed-up cultural identity is veiled behind the face of the girl down the street. She's the granddaughter of upperclass Americans, but her homeland is a divided Asian peninsula of neon-lit cities, five-hundred-year-old palaces, and army dictators. Rice tells the story of her life in South Korea from ages nine months to sixteen, the influence of the tragedy and tension of the Korean peninsula, and the story of her parents, who walked arm-in-arm with social activists during South Korea’s democratic revolution. Told with honesty and humor, Rituals of Separation captures the tension of living between identities, the deep longing for home, and the determination to find healing in the face of unrecoverable loss.
