L. M. (Lisa) Bryski, MD, is Canadian, convenient since her home is somewhere in Canada. She could reside most anywhere though, as she spends considerable time living in her own head. Lisa is a real doctor, but doesn't play one on TV. She gets to wear a lab coat at work, and she likes to fix emergencies, not cause them. Lisa has many proclivities, including a love of pancakes and all things breakfast. She enjoys reading and writing, and is very proud of her pronunciation of difficult words. Her humour is horrible, her punctuation abysmal, but she always finds a way to end her sentences with a period piece. The Book of Birds is Lisa's first novel. The narrative is a 1940s coming of age story inspired by many childhood visits to Saskatchewan, a love of ornithology and the Marx Brothers movie, 'At the Circus'. Somehow in Lisa's oddball mind, it all came together in the form of a book. Lisa's novel tells of Elly and her sister Dot, newly orphaned girls who move to a small prairie town to live with their grandparents. Elly's struggles to fit in lead both girls into danger. The consequences are unfortunate, and hopefully well worth the money to read about. You can find L. M. Bryski on Twitter as @LMBryski.
