Liane Moriarty

Liane Moriarty is an Australian author of several international bestsellers. Her novel The Husband’s Secret even reached the number one spot on the New York Times bestseller list. Although she sold her first book already as child, when her father gave a dollar in advance for a novel, it wasn’t until she had a book turned down and consequently went back to study and achieved a master degree from Macquarie University in Sydney, that she got published with a novel, she wrote as a part of her degree.

Maybe it was because her sister had a book published that she took the task at hand to lightly, when she wrote her first book that got turned down by every publisher in Australia. Because how hard can it be, when a younger sister can get published why wouldn’t Liane be able do the same? Or maybe it was because it was a children’s book, for how difficult can it be to write a book for children?

Well Liane Moriarty has since revenged herself and has even written 3 successful children’s books. Liane Moriarty is now a full-time author. She lives in Sidney, Australia with her husband and two small children.
