Elizabeth Percer

Elizabeth Percer is the author of All Stories Are Love Stories (HarperCollins, 2016), a novel that follows three survivors in the aftermath of two devastating earthquakes hitting modern day San Francisco. Named a Best Book of 2016 by Amazon, All Stories Are Love Stories is "a moving reminder of the way stories connect, and the way we connect through stories, as well as a gorgeous contemplation of the stabilizing force of love.” (Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Race for Paris)

Elizabeth is a three-time nominee for the Pushcart Prize and has twice been honored by the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Foundation. She received a B.A. in English from Wellesley and a Ph.D. in arts education from Stanford University, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship for the National Writing Project at UC Berkeley. She is also the author of the novel An Uncommon Education (HarperCollins, 2012), and Ultrasound, a book of poems (Wolf Ridge Press, 2013). She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and three children.
