About Lisa.

Lisa Frenkel Riddiough has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University. Her critical thesis was titled, It’s Not Just Talk: How Empathy Elevates When Talking Animals Exist in Contemporary Human Settings – Middle-Grade. In this study, she paid specific attention to the ways in which animal and human characters struggle to communicate with one another. In addition to writing middle-grade, Lisa writes picture books and “grown-up” short stories and essays.

Lisa’s debut middle-grade novel, ELVIS AND THE WORLD AS IT STANDS, is forthcoming by Abrams Books for Young Readers (Fall 2021). She has a couple of picture books under contract as well and is anxiously awaiting those announcements. Lisa is grateful that a side-effect of writing is forced patience. She has always wanted to be a patient person.

Lisa is based in Northern California where she lives with her husband in their empty nest. When she is not writing, Lisa enjoys working in the garden, sipping on half-caf iced mochas, and organizing her sprinkle drawer.

She is represented by Jennifer Mattson of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
