Amy Talkington is an award-winning screenwriter and director living in Los Angeles. Before all that she wrote about music for magazines like Spin, Ray Gun, Interview, and Seventeen (mostly just as a way to get to hang out with rock stars). As a teenager in Dallas, Texas, Amy painted lots of angsty self-portraits, listened to The Velvet Underground and was difficult enough that her parents finally let her go to boarding school on the East Coast. Liv, Forever is her first novel.

"Loved Liv Forever! Reminiscent of 80s John Hughes movies crossed with Harry Potter, Leo DiCaprio's Romeo & Juliet, Ghost with a bit of Twilight and Warm Bodies thrown in for good measure. In short, this should be a great movie! Real page-turne..."

Thanks, Jen! At the moment I'm working to develop LIV into a screenplay. Book-wise, I'd love to write a sequel to LIV but I'm focused on screenplays at the moment. Thanks so much for writing! I'm so happy you enjoyed the book (and do spread the word).
