Lisa Williamson

  • 5 stars across 10 books
Lisa Williamson was born and grew up in Nottingham. Following a degree in drama, she worked as an actor for over a decade before writing her debut novel, The Art of Being Normal. Lisa loves writing about characters who are different from her and Mia Campbell-Richardson definitely fits the bill. She's everything Lisa wasn't at 16 - loud, daring and uber confident. With no idea what's she's doing or where she's heading, she's the sort of girl who doesn't usually get to be at the centre of the story. This is exactly why Lisa wanted to take the time to get to know her and figure out what's really going on behind the big hair and fiery attitude. When she's not writing, Lisa likes long walks, long talks, dessert of all kinds, good books and bad TV. She lives in East London.
