Liane Shaw


I worked for twenty-five years as a teacher, spending much of my time with students facing academic, emotional or physical challenges. My passions have always been my children, my students and my writing.

Helping students get their own stories onto the page was always the loveliest part of teaching. My daughters and my students inspired me to start writing for the young adult audience, and encouraged me to try to get my work published.

The Stone Rainbow

A book about coming out, falling in love, and self-acceptance. Seventeen-year-old Jack Pedersen is finding life complicated ever since he came out to his mom. Even though she’s been doing her best to be understanding, it’s obvious to Jack that his mom still wants to cry every time she says the word gay.
