My name is Lia, and I’m an upcoming author of young adult fiction who is currently focusing her creative efforts on the lives of the living dead. All in good fun, of course. I’m a serious writer, hyperactive geek, and flighty horror movie fan.

Author's Own Message ( ie when they talk about themselves :P)
I’m very grateful to have had the chance to live a life that’s allowed me to realize my dreams and aesthetic desires. Which is my fancy way of saying, as a way of summing this little intro up: I’ve worn my ideal debutante dress! It’s not white, but still!
Greetings! I always feel odd writing about myself, as I tend to view myself as cronically uninteresting, but here goes:
I’m a geek girl anachronist from a small city in New York (my hometown is located about as far as it’s physically possible to get from New York City and still be in the same state). I live with my three cats, and lead a quiet life that blends elaborate hair accessories with horror movies on a regular basis. I have a ton of different interests – comic books, museums, action flicks, nail polish. I pretty much swing from “girly-girl” to “tomboy” on an hourly basis.
From a young age I’ve also been interested in times past – the Victorian era, in particular. As I’ve gotten older I’ve embraced this part of my personality, doing my best to incorporate facets of Victorianism into my (very happily) modern life. I tend to view myself as a “cyber-Victorian,” if such a sub-genre of steampunk/Victorianism exists. I like to describe my ideal Neo-Victorian world by telling people to imagine a girl in a gorgeous bustle dress accessing her email via a holographic display – and that’s the type of world I write about in DEARLY, DEPARTED.
My book takes zombies, paranormal romance, neo-Victorianism, steampunkishness, and lots and lots of guns and gowns and tumbles everything together into a story that’s equal parts passionate and tongue-in-cheek. I take inspiration from almost every part of my life, but most of all, I strive to have fun with my writing. I try not to take myself too seriously, and always welcome the opportunity to meet new people and learn new things.
I'm really looking forward to debuting in 2011, and remain,
By the time you read this I would have probably read through this little paragraph at least a billion times. After Lia's amazingly 'proper' english, I feel like I'm living up to the world's expectations as a Aussie bogan (which I'm certainly not - well not that much of a bogan :P) The only thing that can make me feel worse is if I made a spelling mistake which I probably did.... Anyway thanks Lia and remember to come back tomorrow for a giveaway....
