Lia Black tends to do everything the hard way; beginning with being born backwards into the world and now raising a teenage daughter by herself in conservative Upstate NY. Her career choices are no less extreme, including occupations of fine artist, computer geek, firefighter, and mortician’s assistant— just to name a few.

A fellow Author describes Black's mind as "a glorious kaleidoscope of f*ckeduppery"; she loves the challenge of writing about people who probably have no business being together on the same planet, and who occasionally deal with questionable sanity/morality. It’s fun to glue broken things together and try to make something interesting and new.
--She especially loves broken boys who have lots of fascinating pieces.

So glad you liked Willows! I have been toying with the idea of opening up that world to another story or two (or more!) because the setup seems too good to ignore (plenty of men mentioned in Willows that don't make the final round of picks in the auction). This might be a great time for me to start planning! I'll keep you posted! :-) Thanks for the question! (less)

So I promised something in March, but all I have at this point is a small update and a free book on Amazon. The world is a little crazy right now (zombie apocalypse excluded), and hopefully by putting some books up for free every few days, it will help pass some time for new readers stuck at home.

I am still writing, but these days Ive been doing more art. Im hoping to get a few

Quotes by Lia Black  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“ 'How old were you when you realized you were... different?'

Logan opened his mouth, then smiled slyly, 'What sort of different? Gay different, magic different, or just plain fucked-in-the-head-crazy different?'

Collin bit back a smile at Logan's delivery, 'Magic different.'

'Ah,' Logan said, 'Pity, the other stories are a lot more fun.' ”
Lia Black, Spiretown

“ 'Not drinking?' Collin asked coolly.

'I only drink the blood of virgins,' Logan quipped.

'You must be dehydrated then.'

A slow smile spread over Logan's face. 'A sense of humor... rare in a Templar.' ”
Lia Black, Spiretown

“And what first name are you called?” Illythe asked softly, moving up very close to Bryant.

“Bryant.” When he said it, Alex saw the upward tilt of Bryant’s chin, and the squaring of his shoulders. He was playing tough, and all Alex could do was to stand by and wait for the train wreck.”
Lia Black, Where Willows Won't Grow
