Lisa Asanuma is a long-time lover of the written word who graduated with a Literature degree from the College of Creative Studies at UC Santa Barbara, where her focus was on creative writing and poetry. She is the co-founder of Type Set, Inc, an editing and formatting service dedicated to helping writers with publication in their sights. She has also worked as an editor for the now-defunct Drollerie Press, and written freelance articles for several websites.
Most recently, Lisa has been a contributor at Tales from the Hollow Tree, where she has published free short stories with author Isabelle Santiago. You can find a complete list of Lisa’s free short stories here.
Lisa is currently editing her first novel, a YA fairy-tale fantasy that she hopes to have polished for querying soon.
Outside of writing, Lisa indulges in several crafts of a more tangible nature as well (knitting, crochet, bookbinding, spinning yarn), and would like to be at least successful enough to support an ever-growing addiction to yarn and fiber. She can frequently be found on Ravelry, and has an Etsy shop where she sometimes sells handbound journals and notebooks at CinderLisaDesign.
