ALIZA MANN - Having developed a preoccupation with reading as a small child, her mother would literally have to bribe her to go outside and play with her friends. After finding her first romance novel abandoned at a Detroit bus stop when she was fourteen, Aliza read it and was instantly hooked. In 2010, she began honing her skills and joined Romance Writers of America, in addition to the Greater Detroit Romance Writers, a local chapter near her home. She has discovered that while her muse dictates what stories are written and when, she does get to at least pick which genres she writes in… sometimes. Her favorite romance sub-genres are contemporary and paranormal. She loves trucks, movies that bring her to tears, baking, and Scrabble.
