Elizabeth Bastos is a stay-at-home mother of two in the Baltimore suburbs, but she used to be urban. She used to wear skirts as a corporate and foundation relations officer, and before that, glasses, as a writer for the Museum of Science and The New England Aquarium. Her work has appeared online at The Smithsonian, McSweeney’s, and The New Yorker Magazine’s Book Bench Blog. In her free time she cooks. Complicated French pastries mostly. She went to Smith and studied English and Marine Biology so she knows things about spinelessness and buoyancy. Just ask.
