Lizzie Lange has spent most of her life being curious about the oddities and absurdities of daily life, exploring humor in the world, relishing the joy of silly puns, taking in the simple gifts of life, and thus jotting down children’s books ideas and writing poetry, all along the way.
Thus The Adventures of the Missing Sock book, came out of the idea that socks don’t just go missing, but in reality these socks have just chosen to leave. The “missing” socks were simply motivated to follow their dreams and go on new adventures.
Lizzie Lange, originally from Kentucky, loves spending her free time with her two young children playing or being active with biking, hiking, or playing sports.
She is an avid UNC fan, when not exploring the wilderness or being in nature. Lizzie enjoys a hot cup of tea, random trivia, a good laugh, and living each day to the fullest.
In her other life, she (Dr. Lizzie Lange) teaches diverse courses in Exercise and Sport Science. Prior to becoming a professor, she spent several years coaching soccer and tennis, worked for the Special Olympics, led wilderness trips (backpacking & kayaking), and managed challenge “ropes” courses. She was a three sport NCAA athlete in college (soccer, basketball, and lacrosse).
