Liana Gardner

Liana Gardner is the two-time teen choice award-winning author. Daughter of a rocket scientist and an artist, Liana combines the traits of both into a quirky yet pragmatic writer and in everything sees the story lurking beneath the surface.

Liana volunteers with high school students through the International Trade Education Programs (ITEP). ITEP unites business people and educators to prepare students for a meaningful place in the world of tomorrow.

Working in partnership with industry and educators, ITEP helps young people “think globally and earn locally.”
