Elizabeth Staley is a writer and artist currently living in western Pennsylvania, USA. When she isn't working on comics, she can be found watching crime shows and cartoons, reading comics and novels, or outdoors with her horse. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in media arts and animation in 2004. She has been working on her current web-published comic, Adrastus, since 2010.
She started using Manga Studio for her drawing in 2011 and hasn't looked back since. Elizabeth was involved in Smith Micro's beta test for Manga Studio 5 soon after she started using Manga Studio 4, and she has been talking about its benefits for artists ever since.
Mastering Manga Studio 5, Packt Publishing, was Elizabeth Staley's first software book, released in 2013. After a warm reception from the Manga Studio artist community, she came back to write Manga Studio EX 5 Cookbook in 2015. In addition to these two titles, she has also self-published two comic collections and a novel.
