Lisa's Lair

Thanks for stopping by!

I have always loved to make up stories.  My first published work was The Wonders of Unicorn Creek in 6th grade.  The 9 page epic was published by my tiny elementary school.  

Since then I’ve published short stories in anthologies like: Dead Souls, Ladies of Horror 2009, Hell Hath No Fury, and magazines like: Sinisteria, Horrorfind, Twilight Times, The Writers Hood, Savage Night, The Murder Hole, Behold and Shadowkeepzine.

My story “Immortal Beloved” was a finalist for a Bram Stoker award, and my story “The Third King” won second place in Behold’s short story contest.

I’ve completed the first two novels in my Night Trilogy, and the first two novels in my new Moon Series. 

I’m thrilled to announce that Entangled Publishing has contracted my entire Night Walker series!!!  The first book will be released August 5, 2011!!!

I’ve also recently released an eBook short story Across the Veil.  I hope you’ll grab a copy! 🙂 

When I’m not writing, I also sing.  (You can hear song samples on my website: )I’m a professional vocalist, performing with the San Diego Opera as well as other musical theater companies. I’m married to an incredible man who is also a great writer, and we live with our two teens in sunny San Diego, California.

Halloween is a fun time of year for me and all my ghouls.  I’ve always been fascinated by magic and what might be lurking the shadows.  Passion, love, jealousy, power and immortality also fuel many of my plots, but I’m not a villain…  I just enjoy writing them…

I hope you enjoy reading them!  ♣

    Hi Lisa
    Can you please tell me if there is an expected release date for Night Demon
    Thanks Tracie

    • Hi Tracie –

      Due to the mass-market paperback release, Night Demon got moved to Feb. of 2013. I’ll have a series novella coming out this Sept. called, Night Thief. It’s a prequel to Night Walker! 🙂

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the books!
