Lisa M. Stasse

Lisa M. Stasse was born on a farm in a small town in upstate New York. Bitten by the travel bug, she has since lived in 12 different states and four different countries. She graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Political Science and English literature, and is currently a digital librarian at UCLA.  Lisa loves watching science fiction movies, cooking Spanish food, and dancing around her house to 80's music (when no one is watching). She lives in Santa Monica, California with her husband and their two-year-old daughter. All three of them are learning how to surf.

But Alenna and her boyfriend, Liam, made it to safety. Except safety, they will soon learn, is relative.
