Liani is an author, lifestyle blogger, and influencer who promotes a love of reading and creativity in a fun and stylish way. Liani was born in a small town in South Florida. Her love affair with books began at a young age when her mother–an elementary school teacher– instilled in her a love of reading. Liani spent most of her childhood in public libraries and book stores.
Liani first started her blog Rektok Ross as a hobby while working as a trial lawyer at a prestigious New York law firm. But what began as a way to chronicle the books she read during her free time has since morphed into a full blown career. Her combined 22,000+ social media followers tune in daily for her reading recommendations as well as her tips for creative inspiration and living a book-infused life, which often feature her dogs and exotic travel destinations.
As a columnist for the national online magazine The Examiner, Liani has reported on news and trends in literature, covering the red carpet and premiere circuit for numerous high-profile events and film festivals and interviewing stars ranging from widely popular television shows like The Vampire Diaries and Game of Thrones, to book-to-film adaptations like Beautiful Creatures, to best selling authors such as Lauren Kate of the Fallen series.
Liani is also the author of the bestselling Young Adult novel, Prodigal, and has been featured on the New York Daily News, The Examiner, Life Talk Radio, and KRMS News Talk.
A lover of film, Liani has additionally written, produced, and directed the comedy short Weasels with her brother. Liani voiced many of the characters for Weasels and the film screened in 2011 at the Boca Film Festival.
Liani currently splits time between Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York and has a white golden retriever Falkor–named after the flying dragon from her favorite childhood book/movie The Neverending Story–and a miniature australian shepard named Blair Waldorf à la Gossip Girl fame.
