Lisa loves stories with dark, brooding, isolated characters (like Heathcliff, Dracula, Darth Vader, and Severus Snape) and tough, independent, caring heroines.

Lisa served for a short time in the Marines, living in Parris Island, the California desert, and Okinawa, Japan. She then backpacked alone through Europe, and lived in Paris. When she returned to the U.S., she owned a bookstore for a few years before becoming a full-time writer (tech, educational, creative). She lives in New England with her fantastic husband, two children, and too many fish.
