“Her language is perfect as it is - each poem a wide-eyed tribute to the bits that make up our lives.”

“I love the rich imagery and sensory journey of Lisa Brunette’s latest collection, BROOM OF ANGER. I’m with her on the railroad tracks, at the baseball game, and in the bedrooms of these lovely poems—her strong female voice, a conversation with her past and present, all the characters gathered ‘round. Above all, she’s got the poet’s eye: 'If I’d been staring at the ground/ I would’ve missed it.'"

About the Author
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… AUTHOR WEB SITE: www.lisa-brunette.com SIGN UP: Lisa publishes a bimonthly newsletter.
