Meet the Author

Liana Brooks once read the book GOOD OMENS by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and noted that both their biographies invited readers to send money (or banana daiquiris). That seems to have worked well for them. Liana prefers strawberry daiquiris (virgin!) and will never say no to large amounts of cash in unmarked bills.

Her books are sweet and humorous with just enough edge to keep you reading past your bedtime.

Liana was born in San Diego and in addition to there has lived in Illinois, Colorado, Florida, Texas, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Kansas. We'd like to tell you where she is right now, but last we checked she was researching books on both Alaska and Africa.

Not only are the bookstore algorithms breaking trying to track this lady, but we can't tell you where to mail that daiquiri. Your best bet is to try Twitter where you can often find @LianaBrooks talking about her four kids, her giant dog, and plans for world domination.

... it's not very long, but there's a nice twist and it's a fun read.

Very well-written and well thought out short short story. I'd like to see this fleshed out into a full book.

Great little read, short but keeps you interested! I am going to keep an eye on this writer, one day I will be able to say..."I knew her when!"

This is one of those really good short stories that end way too soon. I could see the author expanding the main character and her life into a great book!

Brooks' "Real Lies" contains one short story, and an excerpt from her superhero romance novella. Both are highly enjoyable. The characters are a lot of fun, and I loved the twist ending of the short story. This is a great way to sample Brooks' writing, before deciding whether or not to buy one of her longer works. -- lyradora
