{Podcast Episode #36 | Giveaway}  A Casual Conversation with Liza Wiemer author of HelloHello by Liza Wiemer
(Website, Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads)on November 10, 2015
One HELLO? can change a life. One HELLO? can save a life.

Tricia: A girl struggling to find her way after her beloved grandma's death.
Emerson: A guy who lives his life to fulfill promises, real and hypothetical.
Angie: A girl with secrets she can only express through poetry.
Brenda: An actress and screenplay writer afraid to confront her past.
Brian: A potter who sets aside his life for Tricia, to the detriment of both.

Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens' stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope.

Told from all five viewpoints: narration (Tricia), narration (Emerson), free verse poetry (Angie), screenplay format (Brenda), narration and drawings (Brian).

I met Liza Wiemer this summer at Book Expo America.  We were in the company of so many authors and bloggers enjoying the evening and meeting new people.  Who would’ve known that her publicist, Kelly Hager, with Spencer Hill Press and may I add, past guest with A Leisure Moment, would get us connected, to talk about Liza’s new book Hello.  There is a lot of buzz about Hello sprinkled throughout social media right now.  Grab your drink, Liza and prefer a good cup of coffee, relax, and listen to our Casual Conversation.  Enjoy!

About Liza Wiemer


I am the author of two non-fiction adult books, short stories, and newspaper and magazine articles. A pre-school to high school educator now writing YA fiction full time, which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! And I’m a diehard Green Bay Packers fan.

For my author posts on writing and my upcoming YA novel HELLO?: http://www.LizaWiemer.com
Unique “job” experiences: I spent a summer selling popcorn in a Koepsell’s popcorn wagon while listening to awesome music on the Summerfest grounds in Milwaukee. I also know my way around a fender and a quarter panel and under the hood of a car. I spent a few years driving to accident scenes, scrapyards, hospitals, auto repair shops as a claims adjuster for an insurance company.

I started WhoRuBlog to address YA issues and share my passion for reading. http://www.whoRuBlog.com
Besides articles that address tough issues facing young adults, I have author interviews and book giveaways. Check them out. 😀

Happy reading, Liza
