Thanks for Reading!
by Lisa Henry
I’m so excited to be the spotlight author here at The Blogger Girls for July.
For those of you don’t know me or who haven’t read my stuff, I guess there are a few things I’d like to tell you.
First: me! I live in tropical North Queensland, Australia. I still can’t figure out why, since I hate the heat. But it’s winter at the moment, so it’s lovely. Winter translates as “any weather where you have to turn the fan off and wear socks”. I live in an old house. Possums break in at night. I’ve given up trying to stop them.
In my day job, I work as a police dispatcher. Sometimes this is incredibly stressful, and sometimes it’s incredibly boring. Often, those two things happen within the same ten minute period. It also means I work a lot of odd hours, which I actually don’t mind. It gives me lots of time to write.
Firstly, I’ll write anything. Contemporary, historical, sci-fi, fantasy. Cops, cowboys, or guys with regular jobs. Any and all levels of heat. And kink. As long as the story has room for two guys to get it on (and which story doesn’t?) then I’ll write it.
Secondly, I tend to skew dark. This means there will be angst, and a lot of it. My guys have to work for their happy endings. There are no free lunches on my watch. Seriously, if I’m not physiologically torturing a character (or, you know, actually torturing one) I start to get the shakes. As a writer, I am a complete sadist. But as a person, I promise I’m not that scary at all.
The darkest book I’ve written would be Another Man’s Treasure, with my co-author the awesome J.A. Rock. The most light-hearted book I’ve written would be Mark Cooper versus America, also with J.A. Rock. I write a lot with J.A. Sometimes I like to imagine that readers are trying to figure out which one of us is good twin and which one is the evil twin. We are both the evil twin.
I also write with Heidi Belleau. My next book – Bliss – is co-written with Heidi, and is due out from Riptide on 18 August. It’s a bit of a spec-fic dystopia, with added evil mind control. Not for the faint-hearted!
My first book was Tribute, released back in 2011. I think I’ve grown as a writer. I hope I have! It feels like I’m learning something new every day. Since Tribute I’ve written what feels like a lot of books. But also, I’ve had the time of my life. I’ve always loved to write, and discovering there are people out there who actually love to read what I write is the best feeling in the world. So, to everyone out there who has ever picked up one my books, thanks for reading!
About Lisa Henry
Lisa likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily endings.
She lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn’t know why, because she hates the heat, but she suspects she’s too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.
She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of a mix-up between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English, neither of them very thoroughly.
She shares her house with too many cats, a dog, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grown-up.
