My name is Liz. I am an author living in the American Southwest and I write stories about ordinary teens who do extraordinary things.
My debut young adult novel Hooked from HarlequinTEEN is now available in bookstores everywhere. It's the story of a Native American girl with a killer golf swing who joins the all boys' golf team and takes on the boy with the killer smile.
"Not just a Romeo and Juliet story, the book examines the conflicts of white versus Indian and rich versus poor, giving it far more heft than the average romance. Bravo." (Kirkus STARRED Review) "Fichera shows strong storytelling chops as she weaves together plot lines involving class struggles, violence, bullying, and--of course--romance." (Publishers Weekly) Here's my interview with The Arizona Republic! Click here.
NEXT UP! Stay tuned for the upcoming book cover for Played (Summer, 2014), the companion novel to Hooked, which will be all about Sam Tracy and Riley Berenger's story. A sneak peek excerpt is provided in the back of every copy of Hooked. Sign up for my newsletter for advance notice and news about my upcoming novels.
Attention Teachers & Librarians: I am available for school and library visits and would love to visit your students to talk about novel writing, books, the writing life--anything you think your students would find helpful. If you are outside of Arizona, I am also available for Skype visits. Contact me if you have any questions or any special requests.
Welcome to my little corner of the desert! So glad you stopped by.
