Lissa writes sci-fi, paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary romance novels with a distinct feminist slant for readers disillusioned with femininity in traditional commercial literature.
Her first novel, The Edge of Darkness (2011), is a deep-space cyberpunk New Adult sci-fi about cyborgs, and her second novel, Storm of Blood (2013), is a Young Adult urban paranormal romance about a teenage demon hunter and her shapeshifting boyfriend fighting a coven of witches.
She has also released two paranormal short story collections: Storm Front, a prequel to Storm of Blood, and The Archive of Lost Dreams.
Her newest release BACKSTAGE HEAT (releasing April 15) is influenced by her life living as an Aussie expat in England and takes a look at the drama and romance behind the scenes during a production run on West End. BACKSTAGE HEAT is part one of the LIES FOR A LIVING trilogy.
Lissa graduated from the University of Tasmania, Australia in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree with Honours in English Literature, and a thesis on the page-to-screen adaptations of two gender-bending Shakespeare plays. Her second major was sociology, and her minors include gender studies, media studies, and ancient civilisations including mythology.
Lissa lives in Australia with her English husband and three black cats. Strangely, no one has ever accused her of being a witch.
She also writes under several pen names.
