About this author

Lisa Mangum has loved and worked with books ever since elementary school, when she volunteered at the school library during recess. Her first paying job was shelving books at the Sandy Library. She worked for five years at Waldenbooks while she attended the University of Utah, graduating with honors with a degree in English. An avid reader of all genres, she has worked in the publishing department for Deseret Book since 1997.
Besides books, Lisa loves movies, sunsets, spending time with her family, trips to Disneyland, and vanilla ice cream topped with fresh raspberries. She lives in Taylorsville, Utah, with her husband, Tracy. She is the author of the Hourglass Door trilogy and After Hello.


So this weekend, Tracy and I took a trip to St. George. I'd been invited by the Utah Library Association to be an a Teen Author Panel, and since I have a long history with libraries—my first job was shelving books at the Sandy library—I was happy to say yes. And since I hadn't yet been that far south in my book signing travels, I figured it was a good chance to stay all weekend and sign at the...

Wow! A bullet-train of a plot that pulls you straight through, breathless, to the end. A taut thriller about obsession, identity, and history. I very much enjoyed this novel. Can't wait to see what else this author will write.

The Twelve Dancing Princesses in the Jazz Age! Lovely and lyrical. The prose is, at times, as elegant as a waltz and as feisty as a foxtrot. An excellent story about sisterhood and freedom and dancing. I loved it.

Sheralyn Sweet! You're finally publishing book? Is it YA fantasy? Good title :) I'll totally snag it when it comes out, but feel free to send it my way if you need some advance readers!

Congrats!


The_Book_Queen I just finished The Hourglass Door this morning, and I loved it! I'm going to have a review up soon, telling people how good of a book it is, and I've already started spreading the word among my bookfriends. I can't wait until next year for the sequel-- I love Dante, and I want to read the rest of their story.

I'm glad that you finally accomplished your life-long dream of writing-- you do a great job at it, in my honest opinion. I'm glad that more Utah authors (which is also where I live!) are becoming published and recognized. Utah's been the butt of too many jokes from the rest of the US.

Anyway, keep up the great work, Lisa, and I hope you enjoy your weekend.

Best,
Danielle/TBQ


Bradley I hope you are having a good day! =)

Amelia, the pragmatic idealist THE GOLDEN SPIRAL showed up on my doorstep today! There's nothing like a new, glossy hardback coming in the mail :) The cover design is so lovely, and I can't wait to read it! Congratulations on the release!

Kris Irvin Hey Lisa, congrats on the Book of the Year!!! I just saw the article on KSL.com and I may or may not have shrieked and jumped up and down and yelled "I know her! I love that book!"

Shannon Thank you for friending me! I really enjoyed the Hourglass Door series. How great to have a place like Goodreads where you can have direct feedback from your readers! :)


message 12: by Sarah

Sarah Thanks for accepting the friend request! As Shannon said I also enjoyed your books. They are (I'm not kidding one bit) the only books that have ever made me want to cry they were that good. Best books I've ever read (and I'm a really picky reader, so that's saying something). :D


message 13: by Sophia

Sophia Thanks for friending me back Lisa! I am so glad I meet you at the ANWA confference, you pushed me to really start writing and to finish Winged Warrior and now I have writing more than 20 pages(hand writen) and going on! I am so exicted about writing

Deidre Thanks for friending me! I was in Rick Walton's class this semester and it was awesome to hear from you and all of the other authors who came.


message 15: by Journey

Journey I just want to thank you for writing such amazing books. So far, I am in love with every single book you have written. I am reading the final book in the Hourglass Door trilogy (which is a trilogy that I am in total love with and is the only book of yours that I do not own) and I adored After Hello. Thank you for being so amazing!


message 16: by Journey

Journey Just finished The Hourglass Door trilogy and I thought I was going to die because of how much I loved it. Simple as that.

Thanks for writing it!
