Lani Diane Rich


Hi, I'm Lani, and I'm a NYT-bestselling author of funny fiction for women.

I wrote my first book, Time Off For Good Behavior during NaNoWriMo, and was the first previously-unpublished author to publish a NaNoWriMo manuscript. It’s a very specific niche, but it’s all mine. Time Off For Good Behavior won the Rita Award for Best First Book, and I went on to publish another seven solo novels, and one collaboration. So, apparently, it wasn’t a fluke. I find that comforting.

When I’m not writing words on paper, I’m speaking them into microphones. From 2007 to 2010, I hosted the Will Write For Wine podcast with CJ Barry; since 2010, I’ve hosted Popcorn Dialogues with Jenny Crusie, and the StoryWonk Sunday podcast with Alastair Stephens, who happens to be my husband. Which is good, because I often record the show in my pyjamas.
