Liz LaMac, Author, Entertainer, TV Personality, Ventriloquist, and Fun Lover

Let me introduce myself as one of the Rowdy Writers.  I  have been a freelance writer for many years.  I have published work in magazines and newspapers.  I wrote a syndicated newspaper column called Frogs and Spices.  I hosted a syndicated radio show called Liz LaMac's Roving Studio.  I produced and hosted live Country Music Shows, The Liz LaMac Show.  And, I have written jokes and show scripts and songs.  My syndicated television show, King Joe's Palace, delighted children in this country and a few others for several years.

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.
