Overview

Marching to the beat of her own drums, Roseanney Liu shares her first half-life memoir You did WHAT now?! that details many experiences that shaped who she is today - a straight shooter giving and tolerating no BS, able to see the humor in most things, and a boundless curiosity and energy that enable her to explore the possibility in everthing that piques her interest.  You did WHAT now?! gives detailed account Liu's close encounters with wild animals that almost cost her dearly, why certain teachers she had as a youngster were fantastic, her oh-so-many jobs that finally landed her where she is happy today teaching and writing, how her independent nature was fostered in childhood that's led to bravado and strength in adolescence and adulthood.  Included are lists of random things in life Liu loves and finds annoying, as well as a few short essays on different topics ranging from parenthood, encounters with strangers, hot topics in media, and charitable work.

About the Author

Roseanney Liu is an ESL (English as Second Language) teacher for adults and a freelance writer who lives in the Los Angeles metropolitan area with her husband and two children. When not teaching or researching for a writing project, you can find her chilling on the beach with family, swinging semi-acceptably at the local driving range, or not perfecting any poses at a yoga studio. She also Netflix-binges (with partner in crime, a pint of Cherry Garcia) as much as she plans for her next adventure-filled vacation. She is the co-author of "How to Survive Elementary School: An informative guide with parents' and a 4th grader's perspectives" which she co-wrote with her daughter, Morgan Getting.
