Born in London, Lisa Reece-Lane moved with her family to Australia and eventually settled in Melbourne.
Lisa had a love of music from an early age and studied at the
Victorian College of the Arts and later at Sweelink Conservatoire in Amsterdam, Holland.
She played with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and other orchestras here and overseas.
When she got pregnant, she mistakenly thought she’d have lots of spare time
on her hands, and decided to start writing.
Milk Fever is the result.
The first chapter won a prize in the Herald Sun short story competition, then titled, The Back Paddock.
An early draft won a mentorship through the Victorian Writers’ Centre with Clare Forster (Penguin).
Lisa lives in Melbourne with her son, the world’s most beautiful hound dog, a cat (who insists on sitting on her lap, while she’s trying to blog; hence the typos) and way too many possums. When she’s not blogging, fixing cat typos, running with the hound, or working on the new novel, she teaches Pilates.
