More About the Author
Lisa Grace lives on the waterfront along the West Coast of Florida with her husband and daughter.
"When the summers get too hot, we migrate to our cabin in the northern woods of Wisconsin along with our dwarf Netherland's albino bunny. We leave our manatee, dolphin, and a wild turkey (what kind of seagull is that?) at home in the Gulf. Somehow they manage to get along without us," Lisa says. "I also enjoy rescuing gopher tortoises (tip: hold them far out because they tend to pee when you pick them up) and setting them free in a nearby preserve. For the injured ones I know a vet who fiberglasses them back together again."
Angel in the Ice, Book 3, released April 27th, 2012.
A compilation of the first three books titled "Angel Series (Books 1, 2, & 3)" released May 31st, 2012.
"Angel in the Fire, Book 4" is in the writing stage with an estimated release date of whenever my agents say it is okay (PENDING A PAPERBACK DEAL.) "Angel in the Light, Book 5" will complete the current story arc for the Angel Series.
She has two new series in the developmental stage (Society of the D. E. A. D. and FEUDAL Land); and has released her adult historical thrillers "The 15th Star" and "True Treasure", plus "30 Minutes of Flash Fiction" by Lisa Grace and Jarrod Nelson.

Edited to add: Lisa notified me that she had updated this book to correct typeset and syntax errors, and, upon rereading, I found the book much improved. I still had to suspend disbelief regarding the friendship between Mrs. Armistead and Grace Wisher, but it is a good story.
On the con side of this book, as has been said by many others, someone other than family or close friends needs to go through this book with a red pencil and fix the grammatical errors, including jumping from past to present tense (sometimes in the same sentence), first to third person (really?), him versus his, she versus her, etc. There were times when Kieko was speaking that I got the feeling she was using the same "illiterate" language as Grace - rather jarring considering that Kieko is a graduate student.
However, the present day story was just the opposite. The author's constant incorrect usage of "to" and "too," "she" and "her" were extremely annoying. In more than one instance the author correctly used "she" as the subject of the sentence, then in the next sentence, used "her" as the subject, then went back to using "she." That shows carelessness, and it also shows that nobody really read the book before publication.
She also went from past tense to present tense, and kept flip-flopping back and forth. Sometimes the beginning of the paragraph was in the past tense, then in the middle she switches to present tense, as if she were setting the scene in a movie. The wording was amateurish, almost juvenile in some parts. The author needs to take a refresher course in basic grammar, usage of pronouns, sentence structure, and also focus on how, when and where to use commas - because they almost always ended up in the wrong place in the sentence. If the author had written the book in ANY word processing software, and bothered to use the spelling and grammar checking tools, these errors would have been found and corrected. I typed one of her incorrect sentences into Microsoft Word, and used the spelling and grammar checkers.Read more ›
I love how the author showed that not all white people were cruel to black people. I sincerely hope this was the case, and would love to believe there were more people like Louisa Armistead.
I would lower the price as I think $5.99 is an awful lot for an ebook that one can not resell. I really do feel authors are making a huge mistake trying to get so much for an ebook.
I did find a couple of typo's but they were easy to figure out, and did not take away from the excellent story for me.
One is he should be her: She felt he face grow hot and knew she was blushing.

Another was the following. I think the word The could be dropped or use the word Then.
