Lisa was born in Swindon, although she has lived on the Isle of Wight, U.K. since before she was one year old. She was diagnosed as autistic at the age of five. But she doesn’t let that stop her from enjoying herself or getting what she wants.
Her diagnosis is what sparked the idea for her first book, Wings For a Fairy. As part of helping her to cope with her autism, experts recommended social stories as a tool to learn how to behave in some situations. Along with her mother, Lisa started to invent her own social stories. This quickly became a game involving more fictional settings. Lisa’s mother started to record the most recurrent themes, and Wings For a Fairy was born.
Lisa lives with her parents and her two brothers on the Isle of Wight, where she also goes to school. She enjoys singing, dancing, creating art, and bossing her brothers about.
