Liana Laverentz got hooked on reading in the second grade, when the exchange gift she received was a Nancy Drew mystery. Her love of writing followed shortly thereafter, but she didn’t start writing for publication until 1988.
Her first novel, Ashton’s Secret, a murder mystery romance published by Meteor/Kismet, was released in 1993. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, the Washington Romance Writers, and a charter member of Pennwriters, Inc., where she has served as their critique coordinator, contest coordinator, conference coordinator, treasurer and president. In 1998, she won the Pennwriters Meritorious Service Award.
She then took some time off to rearrange her priorities and “just be a Mom.” She started writing for publication again in 2002. Her widely acclaimed contemporary romance Thin Ice was published by The Wild Rose Press in 2007. Her second novel, Jake's Return, will be released by the Wild Rose Press electronically on August 24 and in print in January 2008.
Her first novel, Ashton’s Secret, will also be re-released by The Wild Rose Press in 2008. After that, she has another romantic suspense planned.
Liana's hobbies include reading, writing, mixed martial arts, soup making, and road trips. She lives in Pennsylvania with her son and three cats.
