With Christmas right around the corner, it’s a great feeling to be able to anticipate time with friends and family.  On this particular casual conversation I  was under my heated blanket, with coffee and a microphone in hand.  It’s always a relaxful feeling when I have a conversation with a guest that I’ve connected with through the elements of social media.  Lisa and I share thoughts about her latest book Gideon Lee and the upcoming book 2 of the series, Lark Singer.  So get your blankie ready, and maybe even your coffee or hot tea, for this casual conversation.  Enjoy!

About Lisa Orchard

I am the oldest of four children and grew up in a small town in Western Michigan. I grew up reading mysteries, starting with “The Bobbsey Twins” and “The Nancy Drew” series.

By fifth grade I was writing my own mysteries and illustrating them as well. I’ve always known that I wanted to be a writer and I tucked that little piece of information into the back of my brain; determined to take it out and use it when it was time.

After graduating from Central Michigan University with a Marketing Degree, I landed a sales job. I was on my way! After spending 13 years in the Insurance industry, I met my husband. We soon married and had two beautiful boys. I decided to stay home with my kids. A tough decision, but one I don’t regret.

I did, however, miss the hustle and bustle of work – and working toward a goal. That is when the little voice inside my brain said, “It’s time to write.”

So I did, and “The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer” was born, followed by my new book, “The Super Spies and the High School Bomber.”

I am very excited as I begin this new “chapter” in my life.
