Born and raised in Minnesota, Lisa Maddock has enjoyed creative writing for as long as she can remember. Writing a children's book seemed a natural thing to do, as her young daughter Allison grew to love books more and more. Reading countless middle-grade stories with Allison, combined with watching antics of family guinea pigs, Maggie and Peanut, became the inspiration for her first book, "A Tale of Two Guinea Pigs", starring the squeaky, spunky stars, Teddy and Pip.
There are now three Teddy and Pip stories. Check out The Bridezilla Who Stole Christmas and The Trouble With Max.
Taking a detour from guinea pig antics, Lisa has recently completed a teen novel - for 12 to 18 year old girls - called Silver Linings.
Lisa Maddock lives in Shakopee, Minnesota, which is a suburb of Minneapolis, with husband, Bill, and daughter Allison, who is now 14.

Silver Linings - Part I
By Lisa Maddock
Published: July 13, 2012.
Silver Linings-through the eyes of 14-year-old Lucy-is a story about life's ups and downs, including young love. Thrilling, confusing but touching first love between a boy and a girl (who come from different parts of the universe, possibly even from different planets) but also the heartwarming safe and sure love between a father and daughter and closeness between a girl and her fierce best friend.
