Lisa Lucas started writing for Reader’s Digest and freelancing for newspapers. Later, she wrote extensively on issues related to literacy and health that were featured in publications across Canada. Several years ago, she joined forces with Laurie Stein, an illustrator, and together they have created a number of books that cover subjects from climate change to refugees. Their work has been recognized by The New York Times, The Kirkus Reviews (starred) and more. Over the last few years, Lisa has turned her attention to poetry and multimedia and although she considers herself a novice, she is completely smitten.
