WARPRIZE HI RESStaff attorney to Chapter 13 Trustee John P. Gustafson, Elizabeth A. Vaughan is the author of not one, not two but SEVEN published works of fiction. Her first book, Warprize, begins the Chronicles of the Warlands. The books are based on the mantra that the only good stories are the ones with gratuitous swords or lasers; not to mention dragons. Each book builds on the other or stands in its own glory.

She received a bachelor’s degree from Baldwin Wallace College in Berea, Ohio in 1980 and her J.D. from the University of Toledo College of Law in 1983.  She is a retired Chapter 7 Trustee, having served on the Panel for the Northern District of Ohio, Western Division for almost 20 years.

Currently, a self-proclaimed Cat Woman, she lives in the Northwest Territory, on the outskirts of the Black Swamp, along Mad Anthony’s Trail on the banks of the Maumee River.
