I have articles published in the March 2017, July 2017, April, July, and September 2018 issues of Military Spouse magazine, plus an article in the December 2017 issue of Military Kids Life.
If you are interested in an article for your website or magazine, I can write about military life, deployments, living overseas, PCSing, and almost anything for children ages 10 and under (since I have four children ages four to ten). To hire me as a freelance writer, please contact me at LizannLightfoot@gmail.com for pricing and details.
I’m available to be a guest on a Podcast. I have been interviewed on several different military-themed podcasts, and they are always fun, informative conversations. I’m happy to be a guest and speak about military life challenges, including deployments, PCS moves, raising children, and military spouse employment.
I do sponsored posts on The Seasoned Spouse blog, on topics or products that are helpful to military families. I also offer Sponsored Facebook Live videos, email blasts, and social media posts on my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. Contact me for rates, and I can help you design a campaign that will maximize exposure for your company.
One satisfied customer said, “I can always tell when you do a post about us because we see a huge bump in sales. Your readers seem to really trust your judgement and recommendations. Thank you!”

My published books and articles:
My first book, Welcome to Rota is a guidebook for Americans stationed at Naval Station Rota, Spain. We lived there for 3 years and fell in love with Spanish culture and food. So I wrote a book about it! It contains 200 pages of useful advice about moving overseas, finding your way around the base and town, where to shop and eat, understanding Spanish culture, how to make Spanish recipes, and a whole section about traveling in Spain. It is a must-have for anyone moving to Rota, and has received all 5-star reviews on Amazon. The book is available in paperback at Amazon.com, and is also available as an EBook.
An interview about my journey to book author can be found on the military blog Humans on the Homefront. I was honored to have my story featured in July 2016.
I discussed the publication process as the first featured #IamaMillie author for MilSpouse Resources.
