liza_palmerLiza Palmer is the internationally bestselling author of six novels, including her first book, “Conversations with the Fat Girl”, which has been optioned for series by HBO. “Conversations with the Fat Girl” became an international bestseller its first week in publication, as well as hitting Number 1 on the Fiction Heatseekers List in the UK the week before the book debuted. Her second novel, “Seeing Me Naked”, praised by Publisher’s Weekly, “consider it haute chick lit; Palmer’s prose is sharp, her characters are solid and her narrative is laced with moments of graceful sentiment.” Her third novel, “A Field Guide to Burying Your Parents”, which Entertainment Weekly calls a “splendid novel” and Real Simple says “has heart and humor” was released in January 2010. More Like Her is Liza’s fourth novel. The book received a starred review from Library Journal in which they said, “The blend of humor and sadness is realistic and gripping, and watching Frannie figure out who she is and what matters is gratifying.” Liza’s fifth novel, Nowhere but Home, received the Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction for 2013. Liza’s sixth novel, Girl Before a Mirror, will be out January 5, 2015. She also earned two Emmy nominations writing for the first season of VH1’s Pop Up Video.
