Born in a time before computers I had to use my imagination to keep me away from chores. Now that I am older, that same imagination comes in very handy with my writing. And I have always had an interest in writing. Even since grade school. However, I never really gave it a lot of thought in my youth...That is until the very early spring of 2006.
I had just finished reading a story that frustrated me and I wondered if I could make a book that I would like to read. So I sat down at my computer, and decided to put some thoughts to the screen.
A few hours later, and after some pestering from my wife about what I could possibly be doing, I had the beginnings of chapter 1 of one of my first books. But I had a lot to learn. Since that time, I have put that one aside at around 50,000 words. Put aside, but not forgotten.
All of a sudden I had so many stories rushing to get out, I had to get them down! I started my second work and completed it, topping out at about 96k words. You can grab it now, entitled -The Event- in paperback ,or in E-Book format. I've started on the sequel entitled -Pockets of Paradise- when the editing of other works gets too rough.
I have many short stories up on Amazon for you to check out, complete, in a handy collection available for free. Or grab one of my other stories from the Future Jumper series available now, with the fifth in the series, just released, in e-book format, or grab the entire collection in paperback!
If you like some of the free works, be sure to check out my latest story, Mirror Thief, available now in paperback or e-book on Amazon. You will never look at your own reflection in quite the same way again.

Read this little ditty in a single sitting. The idea is geat and the work was very well written. It is short, but I believe that is the idea. I can see this work being expanded some day into a much larger, and much more detailed work.
I highly recommend reading this, and any other work by Liana Brooks. Her work is top knotch and always engaging.

The title says it all; this story is out of this world. Literally... In the space of a few pages Liana manages to bring you on a trip into a world where politics mix with space travel, and just like our own world, when the government gets their hands on something, it usually goes poorly.
Add in a dash of danger, terraforming, volcanoes and a little love, and you get a great read.
This story is a short, so be prepared for a couple unanswered questions, but perhaps one day Liana will consider taking this world to new heights, and more pages!
