About the author: 

About this project: We are looking for a female with an Australian accent, early 20s to mid 30s sounding. Some secrets are meant for keeping. Even if it means murder. With the tragic passing of her mother, Grace is sent to a father she thought dead, relocating from the bustling streets of inner Melbourne, to an island home she doesn’t remember. When she answers the call for help from a sign in a store window, Grace thinks she’s found the perfect job. But behind the smile of a welcoming town, sits a community bathed in lies and deceit and it’s not long before this new arrival is caught in the middle of a deadly mystery. After finding a hidden diary linked to a thirty-year old disappearance, Grace makes a shocking discovery, a terrifying secret the town has been desperate to protect. As the bodies continue to fall, the diary opens her eyes to the heartbreaking truth, a revelation which could crumble the town’s very foundation. Secrets are for keeping and some will go to any lengths to defend them, including murder. Will Grace prove her innocence, or will the island protect its secret and silence her forever? A Lie Worth Living is filled with twists and turns that will leave you gasping, a literary roller-coaster of emotions that come from finding buried secrets. If you love nail-biting suspense, then journey to an island where nothing is as it seems, with an ending you won’t see coming.
