ABOUT Lisa Kessler

Lisa Kessler
I have always loved to make up stories.  My first published work was The Wonders of Unicorn Creek in 6th grade.  The tiny hardcover was bound by my tiny elementary school.  The tale ran about 9 handwritten pages long.

Since then I’ve published short stories in anthologies More...



Princess Talia from Summerland has been hiding across the veil in the human world for the past five years.

Starring in a hit television show as human actress, Natalie Thurmont, her charmed new life is shattered when the past comes knocking on her door.

Across the Veil” won Romance in the Backseat book review’s Paranormal Fight Club short story contest. Short Fiction (6K Words)

I wrote Across the Veil for a contest called The Paranormal Fight Club. Being a huge Rocky fan, I loved the name of the contest, so strapped on my imaginary boxing gloves and jumped in. Each week the contestants wrote a new chapter of our stories and readers voted. At the end of the contest, Across the Veil was the last one standing! :) For the contest we had an opening line that consisted of a woman falling and her face landing on a black leather boot. Talia popped in my head, and once I had a Faerie princess who was masquerading as a human actress the story took off. I really fell in love with the story and loved writing the dialog between Talia and her hero, Keth.
