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) NEXT UP! Stay tuned for Played (May, 2014), the companion novel to Hooked. It's already available for pre-order! A signed bookplate will be mailed to ANYONE (domestic or international) who pre-orders--paperback or e-book--from any bookseller. Simply email me a copy of your receipt with your mailing address. Join My Crew! I've started a movement to make sure that there are more diverse YA characters and stories for young readers. Want to be part of the revolution? Click here for details and get involved!
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.
