Liza Gaines grew up in Michigan before moving to Northern Virginia in 2007. She misses her family and the Great Lakes but has otherwise fallen in love with her adopted home state. Her day job involves herding clients, nagging lawyers, and a lot of typing; in other words, she's a paralegal but Liza hopes to leave all that behind to write full time in the future.
The magic of getting lost in a book is one of her favorite things and is what led her to begin writing. Liza has been an avid reader for as long as she (or her parents) can remember. It all started with The Velveteen Rabbit and she's had her nose in a book ever since.
In addition to reading and writing, Liza also loves cooking, baking and visiting the many historical sites in the Mid-Atlantic with her history buff husband and their two dogs.
