Lissa Dobbs


Lissa Dobbs has been an avid reader her entire life and has been writing since elementary school. She spent many an evening in the worlds of Midkemia, Narnia, Middle Earth, and others. Now, she spends a great deal of time in the world of Grevared, one of many worlds she has created.
She started off as a business major in college, but she quickly switched to English and history. It was there she fell in love with ancient and medieval literature – Chaucer, religious texts, etc.
Lissa Dobbs is the author of The Chronicles of Ethan Grimley III, a series for late elementary school children. She’s also working on several YA and adult books, all set in the world of Grevared, a world that exists entirely in a void space.
