I’m Liv

with a “v” not a “z”

I like to tell stories, I love to read stories, and I certainly enjoying bathing in them. I’m not effective at all of them, but I’ll let you guess which. What I’m sharing with you here are the writing projects I’m currently working on, as well as any relevant updates to my would-be career as an author. I can’t guarantee it will all be true…I make no claims to be a reliable narrator.

My mom called it lying. I call it storytelling.

Bon appetit.

Eliza’s twentieth birthday is three months away, which means she’s that close to moving from a level zero Time Keeper Apprentice to a level one. Finally, she won’t be stuck just following around her old crusty mentor, Albert Einstein. Or, as she likes to call him, Alby. Instead, she’ll be in on the action, helping keep time travel safe and spacetime in proper working order.
 
Everything is right on schedule until one of the Keepers’ leaders is kidnapped, causing a tear in the Fabric of Time. If the tear isn’t found and repaired soon, entire worlds could disappear, erased from existence. Worse, the tool used to create new Gates for time travel is missing. In the wrong hands, everything the Time Keepers are sworn to protect could collapse into chaos.
 
Thrown into the fire, Eliza must conquer her anxieties and self-doubt to pass the Periculus—the exam standing between her and becoming a level one apprentice. She perseveres through a minor panic attack or two and rivers of underboob sweat, only to discover a portion of her exam has mysteriously disappeared. With no choice but to retake it, Eliza takes the chance to face her demons head on…hopefully with a little less below cleavage condensation.
 
Once she is inducted as a level one, the real test begins. As Eliza and Alby’s other apprentices follow the trail of evidence, they end up in more danger than they imagined. Drexel, a scorned Keeper is seeking revenge for his sister and will do anything to get justice. Even if it means collapsing time itself. When Drexel captures Alby, it’s up to Eliza and her teammates to get him back and save time itself.
