Personal life[edit]

Liberman's mother was an orphan who fled Romania, and came over to America on the Lusitania. She married Abraham Lieberman, of New Rochelle, New York. Herbert married Judith Barsky, and they have one daughter, and twin granddaughters.

Herbert, as a teenager, used to work at a soda pop shop. When he grew up, he worked at the New York Reader's Digest Book Club. Currently, he lives in California with his wife, and his wire-haired dachshund, Henry.

His horror novels were based upon nightmares which he had.
