Fellow Central Florida resident Lisa Parkin joins the GFTW team! Here’s Lisa in her own words:
Like most of you, Lisa Parkin is an avid reader. She’s been reading fantasy novels since she first picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone when she was in the fifth grade. From there, Lisa’s jumped into the sub-genres of epic, urban and young adult fantasy. Currently, her favorite authors are: Sharon Shinn, Juliet Marillier, Maria V. Snyder, Robin Hobb and Kristin Cashore.
Lisa lives in sunny Florida, where it’s just as likely to pour down buckets of rain as scorch you with blazing heat. She has an academic background in journalism and literature and works as a professional writer and editor for a health website.
Other than reading, Lisa loves writing, editing, scrapbooking, laughing, coffee, raspberry pie, journaling, picking at her nails and collecting quirky friends. You can find other fantasy and YA reviews on her blog, Read. Breathe. Relax.
