Lisa Brackmann has worked as an executive at a major motion picture studio, an issues researcher in a presidential campaign, and the singer/songwriter/bassist in an LA rock band. She still takes pride in her karaoke-ready repertoire of bad pop hits and an embarrassing number of show tunes. A Southern California native, she recently returned to her hometown, San Diego CA, and has lived and traveled extensively in China.

Brackman's debut novel, ROCK PAPER TIGER (YEAR OF THE TIGER), set on the fringes of the Chinese art world, made several "Best of 2010" lists, including Amazon's Top 100 Novels and Top 10 Mystery/Thrillers, and was nominated for the Strand Magazine Critics Award for Best First Novel. Her second novel is GETAWAY (DAY OF THE DEAD

And it is a call to arms. Some have called it C... Read more of this blog post »
