Lisa Rodrigues is a fantasy author based in Perth, Australia. She’s an Eurasian second-generation Australian and an expert at living between worlds. Her stories tend to feature a diverse cast of characters in their culture, sexuality or gender identity.
Her day job is best described as ‘an expediter’, with no relation to the Marvel character of the same name, and no wet work involved.
In 2020 she won the KSP Writer’s Centre ‘Spooky stories’ competition and was a finalist in Writing WA’s ‘Flashing the cover’ competition. In 2021 she was accepted into the intake of the Peter Cowan Writing Centre’s emerging writers program.
She’s inspired by Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, Piers Anthony, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, JR Ward, Martha Wells, Meagan Spooner, Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman and many more.
She also writes under the romance pen name L.A. Monteiro.
