Lisa Kline

Lisa Williams Kline wanted to become a writer ever since second grade, when she wrote and illustrated The Adventures of Little Horse and Little Lamb on large-lined paper. It’s still in her bedroom closet at her parents’ house!

A graduate of Duke University, she is now the author of eight novels for young people, including Eleanor Hill, winner of the North Carolina Juvenile Literature Award, and the five-book Sisters in All Seasons series. Lisa loves working with writers to hone their manuscripts, has taught both adult and teen writing workshops, and is available for school visits.

She lives in Mooresville with her veterinarian husband, in a divided household where the cats have to live on one side and the dogs on the other. One day she wants to write a story about that.

"Kline has a gift for writing complex characters and creating stories with a beating heart." -Emily Smith Pearce, author of Isabel and the Miracle Baby and Slowpoke


"Kline has adroitly combined all the ingredients of a heartfelt coming-of-age story with an enticing mystery--and there's plenty of humor and poignant life lessons baked right in." - John J. Bonk, author of Madhattan Mystery


"This funny, gentle and compassionate story feels fresh, thanks to appealing, closely observed characters, both major and minor, and a compelling setting."

-Kirkus Reviews/Summer of the Wolves


"Put simply, Kline is a fabulous storyteller. It’s no surprise that she is a highly-acclaimed author and a recipient of the North Carolina Juvenile Literature Award for Eleanor Hill. Her writing is smart and engaging with a sense of urgency that keeps the reader turning the pages."

-The Christian Manifesto
