About Lisa Orchard

I’m a Young Adult Author with two new series, “The Starlight Chronicles” and “The Super Spies.” The first one’s a coming of age series and the second one’s a mystery/thriller series. I’m also the mother of two boys who keep me hopping and they’re my inspiration for everything. When I’m not shuttling my boys to school or a play date, I’m writing. When I’m not writing, I’m reading, hiking, or sometimes running. I love anything chocolate and scary movies too.



     Now that I am done with the October-December 2011 magazine, I know I must get back to telling my story (meaning: writing more in my next book “Escape & Redemption”) …. However, my mind is blank today because I am exhausted and wiped out.

     Why, you ask?
