Lianne Oelke lives in Vancouver, BC. When she’s not running around in the woods pretending computers don’t exist, Lianne works in the film industry. Her disillusionment with made-for-TV movies featuring the mild antics of generically attractive white people has inspired her to write some pretty substandard stories of her own. Her debut YA novel, NICE TRY, JANE SINNER, follows the shenanigans of a witty misanthrope as she navigates her way through community college and cheap reality TV. JANE SINNER will be published on Jan. 9, 2018 by Clarion Books.
