Bookish and bashful, freckled and bespectacled: Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, book slinger, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her two cats, Millay and Steinbeck, in Portsmouth, N.H., where she’s the Demon Bookseller of Fleet Street at RiverRun Bookstore, and the switchboard operator in the Write Place, Write Time secret volcano lair.
