Olivia, aka Liv, is not only the inspiration of the Liv on Life Children’s Book Series, but she works alongside her mother, on every aspect of the series. From the time she learned to talk, Liv has been offering her wisdom to adults and kids alike. These kernels of truth—affectionately dubbed ‘Liv-isms’—inspired her mother to begin the book series “Liv On Life”. Liv has penned the 4th book of the series titled, ‘Standing Tall’ by herself.
Olivia is a great friend to humans and animals alike, a savvy negotiator, an accomplished piano student, and an avid reader. Liv and the family dog, a boxer named Bowie, have been friends and partners-in-crime since the day she was brought home from the hospital.
Olivia’s curiosity, sense of humor, intelligence, and insistence that everyone be included are the hallmarks of a life philosophy that she was born with. Encouraging kids and their parents to strive for adventure and joy is one of her life’s missions.
Liv’s personal philosophies on vegetarianism, treating everyone with love, kindness to all living things, and building positive energy around you, are striking a chord with kids and adults alike.
Liv comments: “Mom and I see the book series as an introduction to a lifestyle of change, hope, and healthy eating, all driven by the authenticity of a child’s perspective.”
Liv won the Gutsy Girls Educational Award and she was recognized at the 2016 Global Green as a “Global Green Champion” for her love of green living.
In addition, both Olivia and Elizabeth have begun speaking to students at various classrooms about reading and writing and how important it is to find your authentic voice. Liv also had her own inspirational Blog in the printed magazine A.C.T. And she has her own column since for over 5 years now in Story Monsters, Inc an online and printed magazine publication.
She was a member of the Children’s National Choir. Olivia works and studies with composer/UCLA Dean of Music, Ian Krouse, in composing, writing, singing, and recording her own songs.
Olivia is, without a doubt, a truly talented, and bright kid who can teach us all a valuable lesson with her effortless, yet wise insight on life.
