Lisa Justus' path to becoming an author took a circuitous route through the University of Waterloo where she earned a Bachelor of Mathematics, followed by jobs in quality assurance and technical writing at a high-tech company. With a keen interest in creative fiction, she wrote her first fantasy novel as part of NaNoWriMo as well as an early chapter book for her kids when they were younger. She went on to write the YA paranormal fantasy Darkness Trilogy (Welcome to the Darkness, Darkness Reigns, and Embrace the Darkness). Most recently, she has branched out into cookbooks with her release of Simple & Delicious Vegan Recipes: For Everyone Who Loves Great Food.
These days Lisa is busy writing her next novel, reading, and trying to stay in shape by running and going to the gym. She, her husband, and their three children live in Ottawa, Ontario.

A short story about a woman who watches her boyfriend get murdered by a vampire and gets given the chance to gain revenge by learning how to hunt them. This was a decent story that got straight to the point and delivered a nice vampire revenge story.
I decided not to read on with the novel though, for several reasons. Firstly it seemed to have no relation to this short story which seemed a bit strange. I base this on the reviews of the novel. Secondly, readers said it was slow paced and it sounded like the dreaded instaluv was in it so I decided not to pursue it
