About

richper,e15_#1

Elizabeth A. Richter has always been dedicated to literature and was a big reader from the moment she learned how to read. This is a focus that remains for her up to the present day.  Thus, her favorite place to be is either a bookstore or a library.

As a teenager, Elizabeth did a considerable amount of creative writing, but didn’t choose to continue because she wasn’t satisfied with the results. However, a chance encounter with an editor at Glamour Magazine in 1993 encouraged Elizabeth to return to writing as a means to advocate for people with mental health challenges.  In addition, since 2010, Elizabeth has expanded the focus of her writing to include advocacy for people caught within our corrupt family court system in America.

Elizabeth A. Richter is the author of several books available through Create Space on Amazon.  She is also currently working on a piece of fiction tentatively entitled “Limbo” regarding a little girl who is a victim of sexual abuse who is unable to escape her abuser due to the broken family court system.

Elizabeth A. Richter is a freelance writer who has published a number of articles in Glamour Magazine, Liberty Magazine, Psychotherapy Networker, Open Minds Quarterly, Spare Change News, Storyteller Magazine, and The Hartford Courant. She currently writes extensively for  the “Divorce in Connecticut” blog in connection to legal matters affecting protective mothers.

Further, Elizabeth has a B.A. from Mt. Holyoke College, an M.L.A. in English from Harvard University Extension School, and she received her certification as a High School English teacher from Umass/Boston. She is certified as an ADA advocate by Equal Access Associates, Advocacy Unlimited, and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

For  twelve years she was an adjunct instructor in the English Department at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.  She also co-owned and managed a small veterinary pathology service for many years.

Currently, she is a single mother of three and lives in CT with her partner, Sherif.
