About Liana Brooks

Liana Brooks was born in San Diego, California. Years later she was disappointed to learn that The Shire was not some place she could move to, nor was Rider of Rohan an acceptable career choice. Studying marine biology so she could play with sharks seemed to be the only alternative. After college Liana settled down to work as a full-time author and mother because logical career progression is something that happens to other people. When she grows up, Liana wants to be an Evil Overlord and take over the world.

In the meantime, she writes sci-fi and SFR in between trips to the beach. She can be found wearing colorful socks on the Emerald Coast, or online at

Review by: Linda Arditto on April 21, 2015 :
Interesting and a most enjoyable Sci-Fi about surviving in space when the unexpected happens. Good dialogue and plenty of it.
I don't think it really needs expanding. It holds up as is.

I agree with the previous reviewer. I would like to see this story expanded into a full novel.

Review by: Jamie Heppner on June 5, 2012 :
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!

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.
