Author Biography

ELIZA ANKUM grew up in the small, and very rural, town of Latham, Alabama back in a time when there were no McDonalds, paved streets, or street lights, and telephones were a luxury. Eliza’s favorite pastime was reading the Encyclopedia Britannica.
When she was 13 years old her parents made a decision that would forever change her life. They moved the family to Chicago, Illinois.
Chicago was a world apart from Latham, Alabama. Everything was different – the way the people dressed, the way they talked, and even the way they moved through their world was different from downhome.
As might be expected, her rural upbringing made her a target for Chicago's tough inner city kids. How did she cope? She took to the Library and found new worlds and friends in books. Never before had she found such solace. Latham had been too poor and too isolated to afford such an indulgent thing as a Library.
After High School, she transferred her love of reading into a job set taking on mostly administrative and secretarial jobs. These jobs gave her another set of skills valuable to all authors, grammar and sentence building.
It was not until years later, while watching The Oprah Show that she was inspired to try her hand at writing, first with her riveting autobiography, ‘STALKED! By Voices’. Eliza followed with the fictional aviation disaster novel, ‘Flight 404’.
She then wrote the highly successful Ruby Sanders and Jared Anderson (The Ruby and Jared Saga).

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Dancing With The Fat Woman by Eliza D. Ankum is a contemporary romance that sheds a light on the thoughts of a fat woman and how she perceives the world. Carolyn Carter is a woman on a mission. She wants to find her Mr. Right, but there is only one issue - Carolyn is fat and no one wants a fat woman. There are three men who could be her potential Mr. Right, but they have an overabundance of female admirers. She has her heart set on a man who may never love her. The only man in her life who appreciates her is Taylor, her friend. But Taylor is very busy cracking a case that can make his career. Is Taylor the one for her? Will Carolyn ever find a man who will love her?

You know, there are some writers who have the gift of storytelling, and there are some writers who have the gift of making everything seem real. Eliza D. Ankum has both of these talents. She tells the story to perfection and makes the characters so real that you can see them in your mind. She described characters and scenes with such vivid clarity that I could easily make out their faces in my mind and hear their voices. A job well done by Ankum. I cannot wait to read more stories written by her. This novel was quick to read and easy to understand. She chose witty dialogue for Carolyn and I loved her! A cool story with an even cooler heroine.
