LISA ALBER is the author of Kilmoon, an atmospheric mystery set in Ireland that has been described as “utterly poetic” and a “stirring debut.” The novel was a Rosebud Award finalist for best debut novel. Lisa worked with New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George in several workshops, which culminated in receiving an Elizabeth George Foundation writing grant. Ms. George also invited Lisa to write a short story for the Two of the Deadliest (HarperCollins) anthology, including her in a special section for up-and-coming newcomers.
Before devoting herself to the fiction life, Lisa worked in Ecuador, Brazil, and New York City. Her various career choices included international finance, journalism, book publishing, and technical writing, with a minor stint as cocktail waitress.
Ever distractible, you may find Lisa puttering around the yard, fooling around online, or drinking red wine with her friends. She’s happily working on her second mystery set in Ireland (Midnight Ink 2016). Lisa lives in the Pacific Northwest with a tiny dog and a chubby cat. She’s a member of Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. You can find Lisa at: website | Facebook | Twitter | blog.
