Question: Who is your favorite author and why?

Neil Gaiman. I love his style of writing. He can describe scenes without unnecessary fluff. He's also so versatile in what genres and forms he writes in. I can appreciate how he can easily switch gears from a children's book to a sci-fi TV screenplay without batting an eye. He's a creative genius and yet so humble and down to earth.

About Lisa Mildon

The writing bug bit me as a child in the third grade. I had the good fortune to have a teacher who encouraged my imagination and writing. Fast forward to college, I had an instructor who desperately tried to get me to major in English. Only focusing on those dollar signs, I continued my education in computer science. I wrote off and on for my own enjoyment but it wasn't until years later that I could no longer ignore the call to share my voice.
I completed a degree in Creative Writing and English and haven't looked back. I've been a writer and editor for an online publication Coffee House Writers, where I've honed my voice. Along with some commercial content writing, I now am a freelance writer and editor for several publications.
