Elizabeth C. Gorski


"Having constructed crosswords for almost twenty years, I've been privileged to meet and correspond with solvers from all over the world.  From tweens to centenarians -- we share a passion for puzzles.  My mission is to make a great puzzle today, and a better one tomorrow.  I love inventing new puzzle forms that inspire folks to think, solve and be happy. "
