Hi, readers! Today I’ve got author Liza O’Connor here for a quick and easy chat…except that if you know Liza you’ll know, too, that nothing is every quick and easy with her! I mean that in a good way… I think. LOL As always, chatting with Liza has left me laughing. Here’s the simple question I asked her:
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
And now, without further ado, here’s is her not-so-simple answer!
The answer to this question has been rated overall as Mostly TRUE: It contains 9 True statements, 2 possibly true statements, 2 no clue if true statements, and 1 clearly ridiculous claim.
Where would I like to be? It wouldn’t be in Iowa where blind people can walk around in public wearing loaded guns, which they may legally fire if they feel threatened. [True]
It might be New Zealand, which, in my opinion, is the most beautiful place on Earth. [True OPINION]
But since the choice was anywhere, I would like to leave Earth, which isn’t going to be habitable by humans much longer [possibly true] and find a new planet to live on. To do this we will need to travel faster than the speed of light. [probably true] Fortunately a method is being worked on by NASA. They’ve invested 1 scientist and $50K to solve this problem. [True, but not very impressive.] Hey, it’s something. [true]
Hopefully, he’ll work this out quickly, because once the ocean currents stall out due to salt water dilution, history says we only have about 25 years before a million year freeze sets in. [Liza’s conclusion upon reading a few graphs. No clue if true] When that happens it won’t matter if I’m in Iowa, New Jersey, or New Zealand. [True] There is probably someone secretly building an underground environment to keep humans alive. [No clue if true] But seriously, I don’t want to go underground for a million years. [True. Liza has mole issues]
So my hopes are that Richard Branson goes beyond the tourist rides, steals the one scientist working on warp drive, and build us a spaceship capable of speeds faster than light. [True hope] Still, I will probably die of old age before the ship arrives anywhere. [true] But that’s better than being stuck underground for a million years with some blind guy from Iowa trying to shoot pigeons out of trees that don’t exist. [Ridiculous for multiple reasons.]
(In case you haven’t guessed, there’s a blind guy from Iowa shooting pigeons in Climbing Out of Hell.) [True]
Whew! Got all that? So, readers, where would you like to live?
Liza O’Connor is a nut! She has the badge to prove it.

Billionaire Trent Lancaster has destroyed his relationship with the only woman who ever loved him. Now we discover the full truth of what happened.
He actually had reasons for his behaviors.
Still, there is no going back. Trent has lost Carrie forever, but he would rather die than marry Coco, so he does just that. Trent gives away most of his possessions, fakes his death, and starts over with a new face and a better attitude in a small town in Iowa where his half-brother Sam is sheriff.
Losing his true love has fundamentally broken Trent to his core. His only chance for happiness is to become the better man Carrie had always seen inside him.
True change is not easy. Can Trent grow up and become a man we can love?
