Ah, my Summer Vacations...

I remember when I could wander off for months hang-gliding, digging up dinosaurs, fly fishing, and riding horses all over Montana, or going to Australia,
New Zealand & Fiji to dive for the great white, hang glide, raft class-four rivers and let’s not forget going over a 21 foot waterfall. I’ll remember that forever.
But now I have a dog. Jess. 

I’m not complaining, she’s the best dog I’ve ever had. But it did end my mega vacations.
Instead, Jess and I hike in the beautiful Northwest corner of New Jersey where there are still more trees than people. And here’s the great part: We walk every day. If I don’t like the existing trails, I make my own, while Jess watches and waits patiently. Thus, I have tailored made trails on my daily vacations.

Yes, I miss kayaking and there is a river a few
blocks from my house, but Jess expects to go with me every time I leave the house and she doesn’t like to be in water. So we have our two hour hike, my garden, and then I return to writing and publishing my books, giving me the best of both worlds.

And speaking of publishing, I want to share my latest book, 

Book 1 of a Late Victorian Mystery:

 While investigating the death of a friend and client, Maddy Hamilton, Xavier Thorn (reputed to be the greatest sleuth in England) is greatly impressed with Maddy’s nephew, Victor, and offers him a job as his secretary. Aware of Xavier’s history of firing secretaries, Victor garners a promise that for three months he cannot be fired.
Vic then proceeds, in Xavier’s view, to be cheeky and impertinent at every turn. Xavier endures the impudent pup because Victor is most skilled in extracting the truth from clients and intuiting facts with little evidence to assist.
As they solve a string of cases, Xavier discovers a few more important details about his troublesome apprentice, such as her true gender, and the realization that she has awakened his long dormant heart.

I’m tired of telling my proper bio. So you get the improper bio.

Liza O’Connor was raised by feral cats, which explains a great deal, such as why she has no manners, is always getting in trouble, and doesn’t behave like a proper author and give you a proper bio.

She is highly unpredictable, both in real life and her stories, and presently is writing humorous romances. Please buy these books, because otherwise, she’ll become grumpy and write troubled novels instead. They will likely traumatize you.

Mostly humorous books by Liza:
Saving Casey – Old woman reincarnates into troubled teen’s body. (Half funny/half traumatizing)
Ghost LoverTwo British brothers fall in love with the same young woman. Ancestral ghost is called in to fix the situation. There’s a ghost cat too. (Humorous Contemporary Romance)
A Long Road to Love Series
(Humorous Contemporary odd Romance)
Worst Week Ever — Laugh out loud week of disasters of Epic proportions.
Oh Stupid Heart — The heart wants what it wants, even if it’s impossible.
Coming to Reason — There is a breaking point when even a saint comes to reason.
Climbing out of Hell — The reconstruction of a terrible man into a great one.

And my latest:
The Troublesome Apprentice — A humorous, Late Victorian Sleuth Series, Book 1.
