Lisa Ireland is an Australian author of contemporary fiction. She’s fascinated by relationships of all kinds and her superpower is eavesdropping on interesting conversations.

In 2014 Lisa was a finalist in the Australian Romance Readers Awards in the category of Best New Author, and the following year was among the top ten debut fiction authors in Australia. Her rural romance, Feels Like Home, is an Australian bestseller. Lisa’s six novel, The Secret Life of Shirley Sullivan, was published by Penguin Random House Australia in April 2020.

Lisa lives on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula with her husband and an ever-changing line up of offspring (they leave home, they come back…). She loves eating but not cooking, is an Olympic class coffee-drinker, and (most importantly) minion to a large and disobedient dog.
