A beautiful thief, an undiscovered destiny and a love for all time...
After the fall of the Mayan civilization, Kane, an immortal Night Walker, has taken refuge in France for over 800 years. The modern world holds little interest for him until the night he meets the Golden Thief and is robbed of much more than his pocket watch. Marguerite Rousseau is living a double life. By day she is the assistant to an eccentric French artist, Antoine Berjon, and by night she dons elegant evening gowns to woo French dignitaries before lifting their wallets. Sparks ignite when Kane captures the thief, but Marguerite harbors a dark secret that could ruin them both.

Jillian: What’s the first book you remember reading?
Lisa: I’m pretty sure it was One Fish, Two Fish, Read Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss. The Little Prince was another favorite, but I think I was older then.
Jillian: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
Lisa: Beauty & the Beast. I’m a sucker for a tortured hero and love to see him change when he loves someone other than himself… *dreamy sigh*
Jillian: What’s your favorite cartoon character?
Lisa: The Evil Queen from Disney’s Snow White. She epitomizes a classic villain who drives the story and when the huntsman doesn’t complete his mission, she’s willing to get her own hands dirty and take out Snow White on her own. Plus she does it with style!
Lisa: Night Thief takes place in 1840 in Paris. Kane takes Rita to the opera house, and I was able to find which opera had opened and who sang the lead roles! Super cool for a music buff like me, so I had lots of music from La Fille du Regiment on my playlist, as well as a CD of Paris Café music by French musicians. I loved hearing their accent and the language. Hope it translated into the book and transports readers to Paris.
Jillian: What was the first story you remember writing?
Lisa: In first grade I wrote a story about a huge giant who was really nice and tried to make the people like him. My Mom still has it saved someplace…
Jillian: What’s something you’d like to tell your fans?
Lisa: First off, THANK YOU!!! Their excitement for my books has been the greatest gift on this publishing journey. You spend months alone with these characters, hoping that they’ll touch readers. Every time I get an email or a Facebook message that they loved the book it inspires me to go write more!
