A Path to the Lake, published by Crimson Cloak Publishing
Full of Grace, published by Crimson Cloak Publishing (Coming Soon)
Angela keeps a roof over her head, albeit a leaking one, by writing romance novels. But, Angela’s never really believed in the traditional happily ever after ending. So, she begins writing the story of Grace, who has recently been diagnosed with cancer shortly after finding out her husband Rick is having an affair. Again.
As she writes the story to dispel the myth of happily ever after, Angela begins a relationship with Mark, the contractor who comes to fix her leaking roof, and ironically, it looks like she may be on the way to her own happy ending. But Angela’s had a difficult past and has a cynical outlook, while Mark’s life has just gotten messy. Angela wonders if this is all going to work out.
Grace lies in bed at night, wondering if what Rick wants to give her, and what he is capable of giving her, are two different things. She asks Rick to move out temporarily, while they try to assess their marriage. She wonders how she can get such comfort and security from a man who cheated on her.

Extra Candles. Published by Red Moon Press
Collection of 24 haiku poetry
“Extra Candles is a work of quiet introspection by the poet. That said, when you read this volume you may find yourself in many of these poems. Haiku combines a striking minimalism that originates from the poet and interacts with the feelings, memories and experiences of the reader. In this sense the reader is the real arbiter of the ‘meaning’ of the poem. When you absorb the work of Liz Crocket she will take you to a place where you can experience the poem fully in your own world.” — from the foreword by Mike Rehling
Not Like Fred and Ginger. Published by Red Moon Press
Collection of 17 haibun poetry
(shortlisted for the Haiku Foundation Touchstone Distinguished Book Award – 2015)
“The style in this collection is so matter of fact that you feel as if you are there, a member of the family, neighbor or friend. There is something here that tells you that whatever happens to us it can’t disturb our inner peace, or destroy our essence, unless we let it.” from the foreword from Mike Rehling.
