All About Vivi Andrews/Lizzie Shane

Vivi Andrews was born and raised in Alaska, and still lives in the Last Frontier when she isn’t bouncing around the globe. A life-long travel addict, she's lived in nine cities—on two continents and one tropical island—while pursuing her dream of writing romance professionally.

Vivi has been published in paranormal romance since 2009 and has over twenty novels and novellas currently in print. In 2015 she launched her new contemporary romance pen name, Lizzie Shane. She was honored to be nominated for the RITA(R) for Mid-Length Contemporary Romance in 2016 for two of her Lizzie Shane releases.

Vivi is currently hard at work on her next happily-ever-after. For more about her books or the life of a nomadic romance author, you can find her on Facebook, Twitter and at her respective websites: and
