Books by Liane Moriarty

Australian author Liane Moriarty has written three best-selling novels, including Three Wishes and The Last Anniversary. Although her first job was in advertising, she began writing at a young age. Her father "commissioned" her to write a novel, giving her a $1.00 advance. Moriarty's latest novel, What Alice Forgot, is out this week and has already been optioned for a film.
