After graduating from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada with a BA in English Literature and History, Lisa Taylor began a career as a marketing writer and editor for the 3D graphics and animation software industry. This gave her many opportunities to visit well-known film, broadcast and videogames studios around the world. Over the years, Lisa worked as a marketing communications manager, a marketing and PR consultant, and a freelance trade journalist. A few years before her family�s immigration to New Zealand, she decided to spearhead a family project that would combine one of her teenage sons� interests (videogames) with one of her own (mystery novels). In 2011 the resulting manuscript, entitled Motive Games, won the CALEB Prize (Australia/New Zealand) in the Young Adult category. Motive Games will be published by Brisbane publisher Wombat Books in October 2012
