Praise for Elizabethimg_6144Joseph Vogel, author of Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson, called Elizabeth’s work, ‘intelligent and illuminating’ and ‘passionate, keen, often daring’.
headshotAbbie Maguire of The Huffington Post: ‘caught somewhere between Dickens and Graham Greene is the eloquent yet sharp language style of Amisu, and it’s a flair that bleeds into her character development… nothing short of a modern masterpiece.”
