I first met Lisa through her blog, but she's a fiction author as well! I recently interviewed her about her books, her blog, and all her favorite things. She's always in the know and has a very cool take on all things princess. Here's our conversation.
I love to sew, and fashion creeps into my books pretty often. Clothing design is a major part of the Salarian Chronicles (and the Fairy Tale Adventures as well). In Rook and Shadow, fashion plays a major part in the story line as Princess Salara deals with the way people view her fairy-enchanted beauty.

Since using my real name in publishing has made it increasingly difficult to pursue my true passion of being a spy, I have decided to use a pen name for future books.
This deleted scene comes from Chapter 2 of Rook and Shadow. In the original draft, the king pulls Princess Salara out of the opera rehearsal to have a conversation with her before the delegation arrives. I took it out to make the pacing faster, but I enjoy a chance to see the king's character.
