Lisa Dow was born and raised in Peterborough, ON then earned her Bachelor of Arts (major Political Science) at The University of Western Ontario during the late 1980’s when big hair and off-the-shoulder shirts were considered the height of fashion. Shortly after graduation, gripped by the sudden realization that she had the political aspirations of a gnat, Lisa decided to utilize her natural organizational abilities in the ‘exciting, fast-paced’ world of Executive Assisting in Toronto. After a decade of ‘Assisting’ (translation: sending funny emails to friends and family while she was meant to be filing) and armed with nothing but now unfashionably big-hair, a box of After Eight mints and an idea for a funny situation, Lisa quit her job to write her first novel, It Would Be Funny If It Wasn’t My Life.
It Would Be Funny If It Wasn’t My Life was published by McArthur & Co. in Fall 2008 and has sold over 5,000 copies in Canada. Her second novel, With Her Boots On and hopes it will be published in 2010. With Her Boots On is the sequel to It Would be Funny… and carries on where It Would be Funny… left off, but is told in the first person of the second main character.
Lisa has just completed her third novel, The Influence of Now, which is a stand alone novel and is not in the Kit & Mel series.
