Author, mother, and Hollywood actress Elizabeth Gorcey (Footloose, Teen Wolf) has been creating her entire life with paint, film and words. Her new book series is inspired and written along with her daughter, Olivia, who as a three-year-old began to spontaneously deliver wisdom and advice to anyone who was listening. Elizabeth dubbed her daughter's musings as Liv-Isms, and each book in the series is based on these everyday insights. Sometimes kids are the best teachers, and in encouraging her own daughter to embrace and use her authentic voice, Elizabeth realised how much adults can, and must, learn from the purity and honesty of a child's perspective.
