Sheila’s guest is TV Writer and Producer, Liz Craft.  In addition to being the Co-Host of two extremely successful podcasts -- the award winning “Happier with Gretchen Rubin” where she discusses happiness and good habits with her sister, and “Happier in Hollywood”, where she and her writing partner Sarah talk about how to be successful in the entertainment business, Liz is a successful TV Writer and Producer for numerous television shows including the final two seasons of Angel, the Emmy Award-winning show The ShieldWomen’s Murder Club (which she created with Sarah), Vampire DiariesLie To Me, and The Family.  Her latest show The Fix, which she and her writing partner Sarah co-wrote and created with inimitable Marcia Clark, is debuting on ABC March 18, 2019.  Liz describes her journey from growing up in Kansas City, moving to New York and discovering the world of TV writing, and then her life changing decision to move to Los Angeles and pursue a writing career with her high school friend, Sarah Fain.  Once their career started taking off, Liz was almost thrown off course when she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and the realization that this was an incurable chronic disorder that she must accept and deal with for the rest of her life.  Proving to be a positive example for all, Liz explains her protocol for living with Type 1 Diabetes and how she manages it along with her busy professional and personal life. Liz lives in Los Angeles with her husband Adam, (whom she met in the writing room on The Shield) and their son Jack.
