About the Author

Growing up in a little town in the province of Newfoundland, Canada, Lisa was a shy, quiet girl with a small network of friends. Averaging good grades throughout school, she dreamed of writing novels but never pursued it. Upon graduating from high school, she went on to complete the Licenced Practical Nursing program and began to work as an LPN since 1990.

Lisa enjoys the outdoors, spending time with family and friends and is involved with women’s ministries at her local church.

With the horrific topic of sex trafficking playing heavily on her mind over the past several years, the desire to make aware of what these victims have to endure prompted her to take a chance and write about the subject. With God’s help and inspiration, she has completed the book, Snatched from Innocence.

Choosing to write about something that most first-time authors would not event discuss, Lisa George is not only an ambitious writer. Above anything else, Lisa George is an honest, brave and serious author. For these reasons, she deserves to be ReadersMagnet’s Author of the Week.
