About the Author

Kristina Riggle is a published short story writer and coeditor for fiction at the e-zine Literary Mama. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with her husband, two kids, and dog.

In her wondrously affecting debut novel REAL LIFE AND LIARS, Kristina Riggle accomplished something authors almost never do anymore: she made me care about her characters - and what a wide-ranging cast of characters they are! She made me want good things for them. A must-read for summer 2009.--Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of Baby Needs a New Pair of Shoes
Riggle crafts a moving and accomplished first novel about a family coming to terms with change.--Booklist
"Real Life and Liars depicts a family gathering with forensic precision: we see the characters raw in front of us. But Kristina Riggle's moving and well-executed novel also embraces human fraility and serves up family complexities like a celebration buffet."--Eliza Graham, author of Restitution and Playing with the Moon
"A seemingly celebratory gathering brings joy, frustration, love and disappointment to a midwestern family in this wonderful debut novel. These are characters we know and care about from our own lives."--Denise Taylor, manager, Schuler Books and Music
"Written with grace, passion, and insight, REAL LIFE AND LIARS is a deeply felt novel that draws a vivid portrait of a family in transition, and examines the very real fear of leaving behind all you hold dear."--Maggie Dana, author of BEACHCOMBING
