Tell us about yourself and your books.:
My name is Liv Arnold and I have worked as a copywriter for several global companies and now run my own freelance business. I grew up in Melbourne, Australia, and live with my husband and our spoiled dog, who only eats freshly cooked meals. When I’m not writing, I’m avoiding the gym, devouring a cheese platter, or marathoning way too much TV. And of course, I’m a massive book addict and often read until all hours of the night.
I write romance. Different types from YA, contemporary to fantasy.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Working full-time, I get so tired and must force myself not to watch TV or go to bed as soon as I’m home. So, I give myself incentives to write – ice-cream or junk food whenever I finish a page, or I reward myself with reading a chapter of the book I’m currently reading.
What authors have influenced you?
JK Rowling. Love every single book she's ever written. I know this is a cliched answer. But I love her voice – like a friend speaking to you.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t give up. Sometimes it’s all about having your manuscript at the right publisher’s desk at the right time. Do writing workshops, hone your craft, build your social media presence and enter in short story competitions/anthologies to build your writing portfolio.
