Liza Gyllenhaal worked in publishing and advertising for many years, eventually founding her own advertising agency which specialized in book publishing clients. Over the course of her business career, she wrote numerous romances and mysteries, including Changes of Heart and Heart and Soul. Since selling her agency several years ago, she’s been writing full time and has published three novels which are set in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts where she and her husband have a weekend cottage. They are Local Knowledge (“A book to savor” — Publishers Weekly), So Near (“Intriguing … A real page-turner” — Publishers Weekly), and A Place for Us (“A powerful story that will get into the reader’s mind and remain long after the final pages” —Romantic Times). Bleeding Heart, her next novel, will be published in November of 2014.
