Lisa Bunker has written stories all her life. Before setting up shop as a full-time author she had a 30-year career in non-commercial broadcasting, most recently as Program Director of the community radio station in Portland, Maine. Besides Maine she has made homes in New Mexico, southern California, Seattle, and the Florida panhandle. She now lives in Exeter, New Hampshire with her wife, a child psychologist, parent coach, and author in her own right. Between them they have three grown children. In 2018 Lisa was elected to represent her town in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, and was reelected in 2020. She is also an online entrepreneur: in July 2021 she founded Crucinova, an indie subscription service dedicated to championing innovation in crossword puzzle construction. When not writing, representing, or editing grids, she plays bass, plays chess, and studies languages.
