All her life, Lia Kane has dreamed of being a fiction writer. A chronic overachiever, Lia spent way too much time in college and graduate school and used up all of her creativity on writing term papers and silly stuff like that. After graduating with two masters degrees and a mountain of student loan debt that she'll be paying off for the rest of her life, Lia worked for 15 years in a demanding 9 to 5 job that required a great deal of technical and professional writing, leaving little time for leisure writing. In the height of the economic recession, her position was cut at work. She took it as an invitation from the universe to stay home and write fiction.
Which is exactly what she's doing now from her home in coastal North Carolina, and is loving every minute of it.
Lia thanks you for stopping by her blog. She would love to hear from you.

In “A Sucker Born Every Minute”, author Lia Kane gives us a refreshing new variation on the vampire theme.
Despite becoming VAM-positive as a result of being drugged and infected while in her freshman year, Jerrika, the main character, stays a kind, caring and loyal person, who is always ready to defend those who share her affliction, from attacks by hostile people.
As the VAM virus can be passed on by something as simple as a passionate kiss, infected people are not allowed to indulge in intimate relationships. To complicate matters for Jerrika, the handsome Mayor, as well as the equally handsome doctor, enters her life when she starts her job at the orphanage for VAM-positive children in Blue Sky. Both men seem almost too good to be true.
You'll smile at the antics of the VAM-positive orphans and enjoy meeting their unusual caretakers. This book hooked me from the very beginning. It reads at a comfortable pace, with never a dull moment. The characters are realistic and life like; and the dialogue highly perky and entertaining.
Although there are several suspects when bad things start to happen, Lia keeps the reader guessing right up to the end. Moments of suspense, sadness and fear are masterfully balanced by a good measure of humor.
“A Sucker Born Every Minute” is a truly heartwarming read. With this book I sense the birth of an absolutely awesome new series!
