Lisa Shea is a fervent fan of honor, loyalty, and chivalry. She brings to life worlds where men and women stand shoulder to shoulder, steady in their desire to make the world a better place for all. Most of her profits are donated to support battered women's shelters.

I write medieval romance, cozy mystery, dystopian, science fiction, and more. So the authors I enjoy are equally diverse. Each has their own unique way of bringing their universe to life. It's not that those three authors are similar as much as that each one is wonderful at what they do. They each influence me in wholly different ways. What I adore about Austen's books is quite different from what I adore about Tolkein's worlds :).(less)

A review exchange innately provides incentive for each reviewer to artificially improve what they say because they are expecting something beneficial in return.

No author should ever participate in a review exchange.

Amazon and other systems have software which actively seek out people who do review exchanges and those people can have their entire accounts removed.(less)

Diner Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 19, 2017 05:53PM
Description: Willow likes her quiet routine. She edits books from her small apartment. She occasionally goes out to the local diner for a tuna melt. She enjoys living in Worcester. It's where the Worcester Lunch Car Company made diners from 1906 to 1957. And now she gets to enjoy one in all its vintage glory. But her quiet, predictable evening at the diner is disturbed when four restaurant workers come in complaining about a theft. And her inquisitive mind soon notices something ... * * * Diner Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is the first book in the Diner Short Story Mysteries series. These short stories are about 15-20 pages each and feature authentic diners around Massachusetts. Author Lisa Shea goes to each diner personally to write up its sights, sounds, and aromas. That way you, the reader, can take a virtual vacation to these historic locations! Visit Lisa's webpages to see photos and write-ups of the diners. All of the Diner Mystery series contain no violence, no swearing, and no intimacy, so they are suitable for teens and up. You can read the books one-by-one as they are released, or you can wait for the boxed sets to be published once the series gets enough books in it. It's your choice! I try to write them right after I visit, so that's why there are sometimes gaps in the release schedule. It's not always easy to get to a diner when they're open! A portion of all proceeds benefits battered women's shelters.

Kira Hawke Hey there Lisa! Thanks so much for the friend request. I recognize you from Twitter and it's nice seeing a familiar face ;)


Gianna Thomas Hi, Lisa,

Thank you for making me your friend.

Congratulations on the large body of work you've written and that most of it help people improve their lives.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Gianna Thomas


Lisette Kristensen I'm not a member the group, so couldn't reply. I wanted to answer your post regarding writing violent scenes versus sexual scenes. I think the difference is in writing a violent scene it's total fantasy. We don't look at the violence as part of who we are. Sex scenes are more real to the writer. It's like relating a part of you, your own sexuality and that freaks some writers out. Kind of like sharing their own bedrooms.

Just my take on it.

Lisette
