Liz Climo was born and raised in Silicon Valley, where she attended San Jose State University. Before graduating (which never actually happened), Climo was hired as an animator on The Simpsons and moved to Los Angeles.
After working in the industry for a few years, Climo started a blog on Tumblr, where she occasionally posted comics and drawings. The blog eventually gained momentum, which led to her career in publishing.
Since then, Climo has worked as a children's book author, has published calendars, and has a successful greeting card line featured at Target and Walmart.
Climo currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter
