USA Today Bestselling Author, Liz Matis is a mild-manner accountant by day and romance author by night. She thinks this makes her sound like a superhero! In her third decade of marriage she firmly believes in happily-ever-after! Besides reading, she enjoys Zumba, watching sports, and lazy days at the beach.
She is often asked where she gets her ideas so she came up with the below answers for a few of her books:
Playing For Keeps: I love football and I when I was younger I thought about being a sportswriter but at that time women received a lot of grief. Heck, it still happens from time to time.
Going For It: Jake and Hannah were inspired by Tom Brady and Giselle Buchen's marriage. Only Jake is a yummy half Italian and half African-American (think Vin Diesel) hero.
Love By Design: My countless hours of watching HGTV paid off!
Fun Fact 1: I read my first romance at the age of fifteen and soon after wrote my first romances starring my friends and their latest crushes!
Fun Fact 2: I keep inspiration boards for her books (and other fun stuff) on Pinterest. Check it out here: http://www.pinterest.com/lizmatis/
Fun Fact#3: Playing For Keeps won the NECRWA First Kiss Contest. My handyman husband built a frame for the certificate and hung it on the wall by my desk as a surprise! (now THAT is a hero!)
