About the Author
A life-long historical romance reader, Lis’Anne picked up her first novel at the age of 13 and immediately fell in the love with the grand, sweeping stories of such greats as Kathleen Woodiwiss, Rosemary Rogers, and Virginia Henley to name a few. Later, the dark, mystical, magical worlds of Karen Marie Moning drew her in, and the hilarious romantic comedies of Janet Evanovich kept her laughing. Writing from historical to contemporary paranormal romance, she spins tales that are funny, sweet, sad, happy—tug at your heart, yet make you laugh. Her worlds are filled with tortured heroes and strong-willed heroines who aren’t afraid to fight for their happily ever after. Lis’Anne is also a lover all things abandoned and derelict–there’s just something so poignant about such things and places. She hopes you’ll love the images she shares on her blog. New stories featuring abandoned places, lost and lonely heroes and heroines, and maybe a ghost or two coming soon! Transplanted from a small Indiana town, Lis’Anne now resides in sunny Florida with her husband, three sons, and an adorably rotten Chihuahua named Pinto Beanie. You can chat with her here or wherever you may find her!
