Lisa Maggiore is the author of a children's picture book, Ava the Monster Slayer: A Warrior Who Wears Glasses and a fiction short story, Pinterest Saved My Marriage. Lisa writes in all genres and is currently working on other writing projects along with practicing her storytelling skills during Live Lit performances. Lisa resides in Chicago, where she grew up, with her husband and four children. For the past 20 years, she was a social worker, and won many awards including the Al Ward Spirit of Giving, and has been honored by numerous community agencies for her commitment to children and families. Lisa's social work career helped form many of the stories she writes about today and is the reason most of her endings are bittersweet.
