Writer for Hire

Beyond this blog, I am also a published author and freelance writer. Here are some other places you can view my writing, which is all directed at helping military families.

If you are interested in an article for your website or magazine, I can write about military life, deployments, living overseas, PCSing, and almost anything for children ages 8 and under (since I have four children ages 2-8). I also do monthly book reviews of military spouse literature. To have your book reviewed, or to hire me as a freelance writer, please contact me at Lizann@SeasonedSpouse.com for pricing and details.

My published books and articles:

a guidebook for military families moving to Naval Station Rota, SpainMy first book, Welcome to Rota is a guidebook for Americans stationed at Naval Station Rota, Spain. We lived there for 3 years and fell in love with Spanish culture and food. So I wrote a book about it! It contains 200 pages of useful advice about moving overseas, finding your way around the base and town, where to shop and eat, understanding Spanish culture, how to make Spanish recipes, and a whole section about traveling in Spain. It is a must-have for anyone moving to Rota, and has received all 5-star reviews on Amazon. The book is available in paperback at Amazon.com, and is also available as an EBook.

An interview about my journey to book author can be found on the military blog Humans on the Homefront. I was honored to have my story featured in July 2016.

I also discussed the publication process as the first featured #IamaMillie author for MilSpouse Resources.
