About Me

Lisa Fox

is a pharmaceutical market researcher by day

and fiction writer by night.

LISA FOX enjoys crafting short stories and short screenplays across genres, but her passion is for Sci-Fi/Drama hybrids. She thrives on the thrill of creating something out of nothing, in transforming life’s ‘what ifs’ to prose that flashes a mirror on the human condition. As a writer, nothing makes her happier than having readers say that her work made them feel something or look at the world in a different way.

A resident of northern New Jersey in the USA, Lisa relishes the chaos of everyday suburban life. She and her husband Dan are kept busy by the comings and goings of their two sons. Lisa hopes to begin working on a novel in the foreseeable future – she just needs to get those first few words on the page.
