Lisi Harrison (Clique/Girl Stuff series)
Author's Journey Series
When we set out to find a YA or middle-grade author to speak to our club, we set our sights high. We were thrilled when the writer at the top of our list said yes. Lisi has a great story you from which you will definitely learn plenty.
In 2003, Lisi left her position as senior director of development at MTV Networks to write The Clique series (2013-2011), which sold more than eight million copies and was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than two hundred weeks. Ten titles hit #1, and foreign rights were sold in thirty-three countries. Alphas was a #1 New York Times bestseller, and Monster High was an instant bestseller. In 2013 Lisi released her YA series Pretenders and her first adult novel, The Dirty Book Club in 2017. In 2021 Lisi launched two new middle-grade series—Girl Stuff and The Pack. Next up is a middle-grade series with New York Times bestselling author Daniel Kraus called Graveyard Girls. -- from lisiharrison.com
She currently lives in Laguna Beach where she leads workshops that teach kids, and their parents, how to have healthy, drama-free friendships. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear from an amazing and successful author.
