Lisa Brunette

Biography

Lisa was born in Santa Rosa, California, but that was only home for a year. A so-called "military brat," she lived in nine different houses and attended nine different schools by the time she was 14. Through all of the moves, her one constant was books. She read everything, from the entire Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden mystery series to her mother's books by Daphne du Maurier and Taylor Caldwell. 

A widely published author, game writer, and journalist, Lisa has interviewed homeless women, the designer of the Batmobile, and a sex expert, to name just a few colorful characters. This experience, not to mention her own large, quirky family, led her to create some truly memorable characters in her Dreamslippers Series and other works, whether books or games.

Always a vivid dreamer, not to mention a wannabe psychic, Lisa feels perfectly at home slipping into suspects’ dreams, at least in her imagination. Her husband isn’t so sure she can’t pick up his dreams in real life, though.

With a hefty list of awards and publications to her name, Lisa now lives in a small town in Washington State, but who knows how long that will last…

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
For pleasure, my tastes are wide-ranging. Right now I'm reading a book of non-fiction essays about serving in the Iraq War by a writer I once hired as a freelancer for Crosscut - his name's Jack Lewis, and I like his "leftarian" take on the world. Before that, I read In This House of Brede by Rumer Godden, which is about nuns running a monastery in 1950s Britain.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Kindle Paperwhite but sometimes read on my iPad and iPhone as well.
