Five Things about Liza Palmer

Cool and hip are the best ways to describe Liza Palmer. And funny. Good gracious, this woman is funny. Depends sort of funny. But most of all, I just love her honesty. It is such a breath of fresh air. Minus the blue cheese.

Without further ado, my friend, Liza Palmer:

1) Most played song on my iPod: At 498 times, The Healing off the Lady in the Water soundtrack. I listened to this back to back to back to back to back when writing A Field Guide to Burying Your Parents. Never has a book called for the listening of one song before or since.

2) Favorite indulgence: As you know, Elizabeth, I have an unhealthy affection for cheese and cheese plates. I love Midnight Moon and Humboldt Fog cheeses – and would clutch them to my breast in times of war…as should you.

3) The last book I read: I am in the middle of reading Jane Eyre for the first time. I KNOW. My book club, which the ever fashionable Megan Crane is also a member, is reading Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea in tandem. Reading this book…it’s like I’ve been found – you know, that beautiful feeling you get when a book understands you so? Amazing.

4) Secret passion Cheese. See above. Oh, I have to… I can’t answer the same answer twice? I love to drive – it clears my head. I’ve never felt so free and myself as I have behind the wheel and hurtling up some beautiful coastline. I’m lucky that I live in California, as I have ample coastline and ample natural beauty. But, if I have any extra time, I will make a playlist, open the window, brew a cup of tea – OH, TEA! That’s my secret passion!! I recently had a Tea Bracketology Tournament where I, once and for all, set out to find the best Earl Grey Tea. It was intense and took weeks – a lot of tea was drank (Drank?? drink, drank, drunk)… a lot of tea was drunk. And the winner was Village Tea. So good. So, Secret Passion? Tea. Driving. Cheese.

5) Coolest celeb you’ve ever met: Living in LA, I had to go to Salinas to meet the coolest celeb – I went to the Steinbeck Museum and saw the Rocinante. Amazing. The Rocinante is the vehicle that John Steinbeck drove around the US in Travels with Charley. I decided that I was going to the museum on one of my Head Clearing Drives – got to Salinas rather late and only had about an hour to see the entire museum. I spun around a corner and… there it was.

Liza’s next book, More Like Her comes out January 3, 2012 and is available for pre-order. Want to find out more about Liza and her other titles, check out her website: www.lizapalmer.com.
