Liz LaMac, Author, Entertainer, TV Personality, Ventriloquist, and Fun Lover
I still have people coming up to me and asking, "Are you the, the, Lady Liz that I watched on television as a kid?" My best story though happened recently when a young man walked into an Antique Store, saw me, and voiced his astonishment. He told me that one of my silly songs, Rag Mop, was what got him through a very rough and scary situation while on duty. He said he kept singing, "Rag Mop" and doing the "Rag Mop Dance" to calm his nerves and keep him sane while being completely terrified under enemy fire.
I am wondering how many people are out there now who still can't get that silly tune out of their heads?
Back to being a writer. We all need bread and butter money from time to time and mine has been over 80 different 32 page "peg board" books. I've written on everything from out houses to fresh butter recipes.
