Professional information

Lisa writes poetry, picture books, fiction and non-fiction. She won The Writers’ Union of Canada’s Writing for Children Competition (2011) for her picture book story "Skink on the Brink," which was later illustrated by Suzanne Del Rizzo and published by Fitzhenry & Whiteside. "Skink on the Brink" also won the 2014 SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for Canada, and was a finalist in the Rainforest of Reading (Grenada, St. Lucia, Montserrat.) Lisa's most recent book is "Fierce: Women who Shaped Canada" (Scholastic,) a work of narrative non-fiction for readers in grades 4-8. Lisa's other books include the picture books "A Moose Goes a-Mummering," "Double Trouble at The Rooms," "Bubbly Troubly Polar Bear" and "If It’s No Trouble... A Big Polar Bear" (Breakwater) and a middle grade novel "Jungle Jitters" (Orca.)

Outside of writing, Lisa’s primary love is travelling. She has lived in England, South Korea, Thailand and Scotland and has travelled throughout Europe, Asia, Tanzania & Peru. She now lives with her family and their two lizards (Taud & Cynda) in Victoria, BC.
