I asked Lisa to do an interview for the blog. A story Lisa's mother shared with her is included in A Circle of Sisters. Known in the writing world as Audrey Grant, Lisa's first book, Curse of the Jaguar was recently published. I'm so excited for you to get to know her a little better.

J: What is the most unusual thing you've ever done?

husband couldn't think of anything unusual I've done. Sorry.
J: If you could go on a dream vacation, were would
L: Europe probably. I'd love to see all the sites and old architecture.
J: You’ve mentioned that you like interior design.
What got you interested in that and what is your favorite part about it?
I do love interior design. I started enjoying decorating and designing
floor plans when I was in ninth grade. From there on I knew I wanted to
go into that field. I got my degree in interior design from LDS Business
College (where I met my husband). I love everything about design but
most of all, I think I love creating something beautiful.
I know you’ve recently published a book. Would
you be willing to tell us a little about it and maybe what inspired you?
book I just published is called, Curse of the Jaguar. It's a
paranormal, (clean) romance. I started writing stories back when I was
thirteen but never finished the two books I started then. This one I
started four years ago and finally published in November 2012. I'm not
sure if one particular thing inspired me to start writing this book, but
the legend of the were-jaguar I read on wikipedia.org inspired a lot of it. I have over a dozen more stories for books either in my head or on my computer as we speak. To read the legend of the were-jaguar that inspired me, you can go to my website: http://www.audreygrantbooks.com
can also read the first chapter of Curse of the Jaguar for free on my
website. I am currently working on the sequel to it and am hoping to be
done this summer or early fall. (One can never tell).
