Lissa Evans - Author

Lissa Evans still remembers cracking her first joke, age 7. It involved a hippo. (We’ll say no more.) But the comedy bug was born and, following a medicine degree, Lissa changed careers to become a comedy producer for radio and TV. Eventually, after a decade of running a red pencil through other people’s work, Lissa began to write something of her own. This is Lissa Evans' third book for children. Her first, Small Change for Stuart (published in the USA as Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms), was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and the Costa Children’s Book Award. She has also written books for adults. She has two teenage daughters, and lives in London.
