Welcome to Author Lisa M. Basso
Lisa M. Basso was born and raised in San Francisco, California. She is a lover of books, video games, animals, and baking (not baking with animals though). As a child she would crawl into worlds of her own creation and get lost for hours. Her love for YA fiction started with a simple school reading assignment: S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. When not reading or writing she can usually be found at home with The Best Boyfriend that Ever Lived ™ and her two darling (and sometimes evil) cats, Kitties A and B. Lisa M. Basso is available for quotes, signings, video or podcast appearances, and all opportunities relative to A SHIMMER OF ANGELS.
A SLITHER OF HOPE, Book 2 in the ANGEL SIGHT series will be available from Month9Books in February 2014!
If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
One: Now this might be cheating (a little bit) but my ereader packed with books. Two: My boyfriend. Three: my laptop with an unlimited battery supply (that exists in real life, right?).
One food you would never eat?
What is your favorite Quote?
That would be a toss-up between dessert and video games. Put a warm cookie sundae in front of a Playstation 3 controller and I’m stick a fork in me because I’m done.
When I’m not writing or reading, I can be found playing the latest Call of Duty or Lego titles, oh and don’t forget the zombies. I’ll play anything with zombie slaying. Plus, I’m a pretty damn good baker, if I do say so myself. Baking helps relax me almost as much as pulling the trigger on a camping noob.
As long as it takes. It really depends on getting to know the characters in your head, their world, and how much research needs to be done before hand. I’d say anywhere between a month and a year.
Something your readers would never guess about you?
Before I became a writer, I was sort of a woman of all trades. I’ve been a rental car agent (driving Corvettes and Porches around the streets of downtown San Francisco), a certified massage therapist, and an eternal college student (taking almost every class offered before they kicked me out with a degree).
Horror or Romance?
Sweet or Salty?
A Shimmer of Angels
Sixteen-year-old Rayna sees angels, and has the medication and weekly therapy sessions to prove it. Now, in remission, Rayna starts fresh at a new school, lands a new job, and desperately tries for normalcy. She ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But these days, it’s more than just hallucinations that keep Rayna up at night. Students are dying, and she may be the only one who can stop it. Can she keep her job, her sanity, and her friends from dying at the hands of angels she can’t admit to seeing?
