Lisa Lewis Tyre grew up in a small town in Tennessee where the only form of entertainment was watching her crazy family, and even crazier neighbors. She figured out early on that not every child had a pet skunk, a dad that ran a bar in the front yard, or a neighbor that was so large his house had to be torn down to get him out.
What else could she do but write? Lisa’s debut middle grade novel, Last In a Long Line of Rebels, released September 29, 2015 from Nancy Paulsen Books. Her second novel, HOPE IN THE HOLLER, was released in 2018.
Currently living in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and daughter, Lisa’s still been known to spy on her neighbors.
