I'm Lisa and I have loved books for as long as I can remember. When I was a teenager I really got the writing bug after a homework assignment. Who knew that one teachers homework assignment would lead to be publishing my first book and writing numerous stories in-between.
My two close friends have been pushing me for the last 2 years or so to finally take the leap from just writing for nobody to published author. I will forever be grateful to them.
I have lived in the same area my whole life but love to travel. One of my favourite places was New York (which is the setting for my first book).
I have lots of ideas for new stories just need to get them out of my head and onto my computer.
When did you first start writing?
When I was a teenager. My English teacher set us a homework assignment - Write a short story. Most people's was a few pages (3/4/5) mine finished up being about 13 sides of a4 paper. (I still have that story in my filing cabinet where i keep all my writing.) Then you couldn't stop me writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I wanted to write something different to what I'd wrote before. So the romance genre was just that. I love reading books in the genre all different types so I set my sight on that. A few years ago I went on Holiday to New York which is the setting of the book and I always knew that, setting my book in New York was always going to be my first choice. I fell in love with the place and can't wait to go back.
