Shelley (Elyse Grant) Lieber

Goodreads Author

in New York City, The United States




Member Since
February 2009


Shelley Lieber is an author with a split personality. She's the body and spokesperson for several alter egos who write racy fiction.

In her past life as a publishing consultant, Shelley (formerly known as The Wordy Woman) wrote 4Ps to Publishing Success and Publishing Made Easy & Profitable for new and aspiring authors.
