About the Author
Lisa Orchard grew up loving books. She was hooked on books by the fifth grade and even wrote a few of her own. She knew she wanted to be a writer even then. Her first published works are the “Super Spies Series.” These stories revolve around a group of friends who form their own detective squad and the cases they solve. “The Starlight Chronicles,” is the next series that Lisa created with musical misfit, Lark Singer as her main character.
Lisa resides in Michigan with her husband, Steve, and two wonderful boys. Currently, she’s working on the next book in the Starlight Chronicles Series along with a few new ideas that may turn into stand-alone novels. When she’s not writing she enjoys spending time with her family, running, hiking, and reading.
1. How long does it typically take you to write a book?
It depends on the book and how much research I have to do, the more research the longer it takes.
2. When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I was in fifth grade when I started writing, but I didn’t pursue publication until I was home with my kids. I was forty-eight when I was first published.
3. What suggestions would you give potential author to help them become a better writer?
I would tell them to join a good Writer’s Group. I believe getting constructive feedback on your work is essential to improving it.
4. How frequently do you hear from your fans?
Quite a bit. I don’t hear from them every day, but it’s nice when they send me a quick note or leave a great review. Those things mean a lot to me. I love it when I hear from a parent whose child has started to enjoy reading because of my books.
5. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Did becoming a writer ever cross your mind?
Yes it did. I knew I wanted to be a writer by the fifth grade.
6. What hobbies do you enjoy when you are not writing?
I love spending time with my kids and I love to hike through the woods. I really enjoy being in nature. I also run, although not quite as fast as I used to.
