Lisa Frei was born in Ismaning, a village in Bavaria, Germany, near Munich before World War II.
She moved to England in 1962 to be an au pair girl in order to learn the English language. She had studied English for some years, but when she arrived in England she found she couldn't understand a word. However, she soon learned, took a couple of exams and then got married.
In 1993 Lisa became a widow and in 2002 she moved into a cosy little home in the small village of Trowell in Nottinghamshire, to be nearer to her son Michael. Her daughter Angela lives abroad, and visits frequently.
Lisa absolutely adores writing as well as reading other people's writing. She also loves studying languages (currently French and Arabic) and learning about other cultures and how people live.
Lisa firmly believes we all have a story to tell and that anybody who wants to should write.
Lisa is currently working on translating The Road of the Mountaineer into German, and is looking forward to writing a Science Fiction story as her first fictional story.

May we learn to live, to love, to tolerate and understand,
