Lisa Poché Calhoun is the author of the exciting survival fiction novel "Superflare: The Fortunate Ones." Prior to writing the book, she once worked in front of the camera in the film industry. Attracted by life behind the scenes, she became a location scout and worked on productions from commercials to feature films, including "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, 1 and 2." She worked her way up and by the time and injury sidelined her, she had been the Location Manager on feature films. Between movies she had written for newspapers and magazines and realized she now had the spare time a novel would demand. Thanks to the success of the novel and request for sequels from her readers, she is focused on writing the next installment of Superflare.
Her thirst for knowledge keeps her reading and researching subjects that interest her. As her understanding of the subjects covered in "Superflare: The Fortunate Ones" grew, she felt compelled to write the book. She chose survival fiction as her genre and wrote in a style that submerges her readers into the story. She lets the characters tell the readers about themselves.

They live in the city, but she grew up on a sugarcane farm and often points out that she's a country girl at heart.
