INTERVIEW WITH LISA HARRIS

INSPYs: What inspired Vendetta? The story’s heroine, Nikki Boyd really came first. I wanted a strong character motivated by a complex backstory. The story became the perfect way to share her past as it intertwine with the present. The setting of a national park quickly became another character that worked perfect with her search for a missing teen.

INSPYs: Can you give readers a sneak peek on what your working on next? I’ve just finished book three of this series (Pursued) and am now working on another suspense set in Italy.

Lisa-HarrisABOUT THE AUTHOR

I’m a wife, mom, teacher, author, dreamer, photographer, world explorer, but most importantly a follower of Christ Jesus.

I currently live with my husband near the Indian Ocean in Mozambique where we work as church-planting missionaries. We’ve started the empty next stage with two children spread around the globe and a third—thankfully—still at home.

When I’m not working l love hanging out with my family at the beach, playing games, cooking different ethnic dishes, and heading into the African bush on safari.

    Vendetta was a good suspense novel!

    It’s such a unique perspective that Lisa Harris has due to her life as a missionary in Africa. I wonder if future novels will be set there.

  • Thanks so much for letting me stop by and share a bit! Staci, I actually have several book written set in Africa, my Mission Hope series and two with Love Inspired Suspense. (One of them coming out next year) While I’ve loved writing Nikki’s stories, it’s also fun to set things outside the US.

      Good to know Lisa! I’ve only read your Southern Crimes Series and Vendetta. I’ll have to look into the others. 🙂
