Lisa Brunette is author of The Dreamslippers Series, a sexy-cozy murder-mystery series about a family of psychic PIs. The first book in the three-part series is Cat in the Flock; main character Cat McCormick goes undercover in a fundamentalist church, becoming a literal cat amidst the flock. Framed and Burning and Bound to the Truth come next in the series, and all books have been gathered together as a boxed set.
For the past 15 years, Lisa has written and designed game stories for a living, mostly for a 30+ female audience. She's the owner of a successful studio called Brunette Games, and Anthony Valterra is her VP and has designed and written a few game stories himself. He's also the former brand manager for Dungeons & Dragons, among other bragging rights; theirs was a gamer romance!
Lisa has also written a book of poetry inspired in part by yoga and nature, Broom of Anger. A longtime journalist, she's penned numerous articles for publications such as the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Poets & Writers Magazine, and Crosscut, to name just a few. She writes on a wide range of topics here at Brunette Gardens - from asanas to zucchini - building on her previous experience as a lifestyle editor and feature writer. A longtime journalist, her work has been published in newspapers, magazines, and online across a writing career spanning 30 years. Here are some representative articles.
