Aliza Mann has a familiar story in the world of authors – she has been writing since she was seven, created millions of worlds in her mind and loves everything about literature. Her affair with paranormal began with her brother’s role as Aslan in a school production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Everything about the story fascinated her and she has never stopped reading since. Much to her mother’s dismay, Aliza would often skip going outside to play with friends in order to stay in her room reading. Her junior high school experience was not much different. She would spend all her time making up stories for her girlfriends, then spend all evening swapping tales with them over the phone. With high school, college and eventually her professional life, she found less and less time to dedicate to her writing. In 2009, she decided to refocus on her writing career by taking courses and workshops to hone her craft. Her first publication, a historical fiction short entitled Anjani’s Song, was selected for inclusion in Reverie – Midwest African American Journal, an Aquarius Press publication.
Aliza joined Romance Writers of America in 2010, as well as the Greater Detroit Romance Writers of America local chapter. She holds a Savvy Author membership and continues to participate in workshops and critique groups.
Today, she is the mother of two and works in the Healthcare industry as an IT professional. She shares her home with her 13-year-old son and her own personal Alpha-superhero-best-friend. Her daughter lives off campus at a college nearby. She has lived in Michigan since she was a small child and still considers her home state of Georgia near and dear to her heart.
Aliza loves paranormal and contemporary romances, leaning towards searing hot heat levels. Her favorite authors include Sylvia Day, Maya Banks, Lora Leigh and Karina Cooper. She still reads excessively and works on too many stories at once. She wouldn’t have it any other way.
