Lisa is LJ Swallow’s other pen name and a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance. She is originally from the UK but moved to Australia in 2001. She now lives in Perth, Western Australia with her husband, three children, and Weimaraner, Tilly, who often makes appearances on Lisa’s social media.
Lisa’s first publication was a moving poem about the rain, followed by a suspenseful story about shoes. Following these successes at nine years old there was a long gap in her writing career, until she published her first book in 2013.
Lisa studied English at the University of Leeds and has worked as an English teacher in France, as an advertising copywriter in England, and ran her own business in Australia.
She lived in Europe as a child and also travelled when she left university where she found inspiration for some of her book locations. These days, Lisa is happy in her writing cave under Tilly’s supervision.
