The whole thing just sort of happened at a time in my life where I needed a big change. I've always loved being creative, writing, drawing. I've written things over the years for fun, and I even tried to right a screenplay years ago. When I went through a little identity crisis I decided I need to do something defining for myself. The result was In Search of Lucy which has been an Amazon bestseller a few times. So I feel very thankful things worked out.(less)

High Maintenance by Lia Fairchild
"This was a really great novella! I loved the humor in the story and the pacing was great. I really connected with the characters. Highly recommend!"
High Maintenance by Lia Fairchild
"Like all of Fairchild's books, the characters are a hit in this book--the good guys and the bad guys, and for a novella, everyone in between. The banter is fun, the problems are real, and the twist is a surprise even though I've come to expect it..." Read more of this review »
Compulsive by Lia Fairchild
"This was a hard one to put down. It reads a little disjointed at times, because Gray, the main character, is herself disjointed. She struggles with so many inner demons, demons that have made her go to excesses to try to ignore them. All of it in..." Read more of this review »

“It’s so strange how an image, or thought, can just bring you instantly back to a memory. You find yourself feeling the same feelings you felt back then, like they never left. Feelings you thought you’d buried a long time ago.”
Lia Fairchild, In Search of Lucy

“Check out that curly hair.” Jayne sat and stared through the glass window of my corner office, drool dripping from her chin like barbecue sauce at an all-you-can-eat wings night. “It reminds me”
Lia Fairchild, Emma vs. the Tech Guy
