Lisa Hall



Lisa loves words, reading and everything there is to love about books. She has dreamed of being a writer since she was a little girl either that or a librarian - and after years of talking about it, was finally brave enough to put pen to paper (and let people actually read it). Lisa lives in a small village in Kent, surrounded by her towering TBR pile, a rather large brood of children, dogs, chickens and ponies and her long-suffering husband. She is also rather partial to eating cheese and drinking wine.

Genres: Mystery
