Before she began writing, Lisa worked as a photographer for twelve years. Past clients include the Independent on Sunday, Daily Telegraph and Observer.
The sea photographs also sell through galleries in Cornwall. This includes her local Polperro Arts Foundation, which has framed and mounted prints, and signed copies of Lisa’s books.
Author & photographer
Lisa grew up on eroding cliffs on the Isle of Sheppey, with stories of local pubs and churches that had been lost to the sea. She is the author of several award-winning books, and Rag and Bone (John Murray, 2020) won the Royal Society of Literature Giles St Aubyn Award for Non-fiction. For the past 20 years she has lived with her family on the south coast of Cornwall, in a house shared with buckets and boxes of beach finds.
