Lisa B. Kamps is the author of the best-selling series The Baltimore Banners, featuring "hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players" (USA Today), on and off the ice. Her newest series, Firehouse Fourteen, features hot and heroic firefighters and launched with ONCE BURNED.
Lisa grew up with an overactive imagination, strong encouragement from her parents, an insatiable infatuation with the Peanuts gang--and the constant companion of stories in her head. Writing those stories down just seemed natural and a new love was born at the ripe old age of five!
That love of writing continued to grow, along with all those voices in her head, even during her assorted careers: first as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department, then a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.
Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons (who are mostly sorta-kinda moved out!), one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.
