Lisa Ann has been involved with storytelling and entertainment, in one form or another, her entire life. Beginning her creative journey as both a writer and an actor, Lisa Ann spent many years immersing herself in innumerable books, countless theatre productions and earning a degree in Musical Theatre. Shortly after college, she attended the Vancouver Film School to learn the finer points of screenwriting. This study culminated in the writing of a few feature length scripts and an overwhelmingly potent desire to move from Canada to Hollywood. Once ensconced in East Hollywood however, creative inspiration lured Lisa Ann away from screenwriting and returned her to her original writing intentions: to be a novelist. In three months, Lisa Ann had completed her first novel, I Raid, and there has been no cessation of her novel writing ever since. Moving back to Canada, she spent many years working as a talent agent in Vancouver before retiring from the film industry to focus on writing full-time.
Lisa Ann derives great personal satisfaction by delivering her characters through the twisting arcs and unexpected tribulations of their imaginary lives. She strives to keep her readers on edge while enjoying the suspense and surprise of their literary journey.
She resides in picturesque Vancouver, BC, Canada where she is happily nestled in between the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal Mountain range.

The Corvids: Book One Autumn by Lisa Ann Brown 3 Stars
This is a delightful fantasy mystery thriller set in an imaginary world of gypsies, magic and spells where ladies wear gowns, people ride horses or travel in carriages and the spirit world is very real. The book begins at the scene of a gruesome murder and our female protagonist Arabel is determined to find out who is behind the crime and why. During the course of her self directed investigations Arabel finds clues that her family's history is not what she believed and as she nears the source of danger responsible for the murders more light is shed on what occurred to her late grandfather and her parents.
Lisa Anne Brown has created a magical world in which this story is set and Arabel is a strong heroine. There is a charming romantic twist and a lot of magic. As enjoyable as the book is to read it loses pace halfway through but does end climatically on a cliff hanger. I look forward to reading the sequel due out in May this year.
