Editorial Reviews

Review

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST
"... a beautifully written novel, original, and a very enjoyable read." -- Ella's Book Reviews

"... a sumptuous blend of some familiar books--it has the feel of The Giver, plus a bit of Wool, all tied up with a very slight smidgen of The Hunger Games--yet in the end... an entity all its own...." -- Imagination Ether Press

"A strange one this for me because it wasn't QUITE what I was expecting--ultimately, it was something very different and yet quite beautiful." -- LizLovesBooks

"... an interesting and original novel, despite early similarities to M Night Shymalan's film The Village, Lisa M Green manages to give us something better and beyond a simplistic twist... a really well-written novel... that will leave you thinking." -- Trollking Book Reviews

From the Author

As a true lover of the English language, I have always enjoyed reading. A carefully developed and beautifully written storyline never fails to pull me into a tale of adventure or a world of fantasy. Give me a gripping story with a captivating and thought-provoking message, and I am hooked.

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1978. Throughout my childhood, I drove everyone around me insane with constant writings, poems, stories, and plays. My friends and family were forced to watch-- and often take part in-- a plethora of theatrical performances written or adapted by yours truly. This passion for writing won me the very notable and prestigious Fourth Grade Writing Award for the writing fair at my elementary school that year. I was very proud.

Sometime during high school, I lost faith in myself and my abilities and chose to walk the pragmatic path after graduation. Because teaching was a career that I had also been interested in since childhood, I chose that as my path. Attending Kennesaw State University, I earned a B.S. in English Education and went on to a career in teaching high school English and Literature courses. Most days I'm fairly certain I'm the only one in the room enjoying the material. While I know that we cannot all fall in love with English classes, I still believe that reading for pleasure is vital to our own personal happiness and wholeness.

When I am not reading, writing, or teaching, I am pursuing one of my other two passions: cooking and traveling. So far, the only places I have visited outside of the U.S. are Mexico, England, France, and Italy. However, my husband and I visit England on an annual basis to visit his family, and I hope to add many more countries to our repertoire over the coming years. My daughter has recently been able to share in these wonderful adventures with us as well. Traveling is an eye-opening experience that can enrich the lives and minds of everyone, regardless of age. 

Recently, inspiration caught me up in a whirlwind of my mind's own creation. Through a complex set of mental twists and turns, I found my muse. I found my story.

I found my self-confidence. And now I have found the missing pieces of myself again. My hope is that my story touches others in ways they can't even imagine yet.
