Lisa Tippings is a freelance writer living in Swansea. Born in the South Wales valleys, she grew up with her parents and twin sister in a terrace house overlooking the Welsh hills. Sunday nights were spent watching costume dramas on television, and these in turn inspired a love of nineteenth century literature - Eliot, Bronte and Dickens being the novelists she was particularly drawn to. A career in English teaching followed, before she took the plunge and decided to dedicate herself to writing full time.


Having written a book about the suffrage movement in Wales, and a history of the city of Swansea, The Life Of George Eliot is Lisa’s third book.


When she is not writing, Lisa can often be found exploring the museums and galleries of Wales, indulging in her love of book shopping or curled up in her favourite arm chair with a good book on her lap and a cup of tea in her hand.
