Luckily, she found the town library and its magical books brimming with enchanted beings. Luckier still, she grew up to be a writer and is now creates enchanted worlds for other readers. Lisa Harkrader’s first novel was Airball: My Life in Briefs. She wrote and illustrated her last two novels, The Adventures of Beanboy and Cool Beans: The Further Adventures of Beanboy. She lives with her family in Kansas.
