Growing up Elizabeth Fecto was a child “poet” who was often published in local/school productions. Living in Connecticut, she enjoyed the usual rural outdoor activities and had a close knit group of friends. She always loved the coast of Maine and that is where you will find her now. In her spare time Fecto is a creative writer and is passionate about reading, as well as, being a grandmother.
