Lisa Tyre grew up in a small town in Tennessee surrounded by her crazy family and neighbors. She learned early on that not every child had a pet skunk! Lisa has wanted to write for as long as she can remember, probably because she comes from a long line of storytellers. Lisa loved listening to her dad tell tales about the escapades of his youth.
