Visiting Author for Schools: Lisa Brown Roberts

Lisa Brown Roberts

Flexible dates.

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn’t recovered from the teenage trauma of tweezing off both eyebrows, or that time she crashed her car into a tree while trying impress a guy. Is it any wonder she loves writing romantic comedies for teens? Lisa’s award-winning YA novels have earned praise from Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, and School Library Journal. Her upcoming novel, The Bookworm Crush, releases in October, 2019

ABOUT THE BOOKThe Bookworm Crush

This spinoff of The Replacement Crush featuring Amy and Toff is sure to melt your heart.

Shy bookworm Amy McIntyre is about to compete for the chance to interview her favorite author, who hasn't spoken to the press in years. The only way to win is to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, but that level of confidence has never come easy. The solution? A competition coach. The problem? The best person for the job is the guy she's secretly crushing on…local surfer celebrity Toff Nichols. He’s a player. He’s a heartthrob. He makes her forget basic things, like how to breathe. How can she feel any confidence around him? To her surprise, Toff agrees to help. And he’s an excellent teacher. Amy feels braver—maybe even brave enough to admit her feelings for him. When their late night practices become less about coaching and more about making out, Amy’s newfound confidence wavers. But does Toff really like her or is this just another lesson?

Lisa also has several books set in Denver: How (not) to Fall in Love - Themes: From riches to rags, losing everything material but gaining love and finding family; Spies, Lies, and Allies - Themes: Dads and daughters reconnecting; "Breakfast Club" group of interns working together, sweet romance.

Lisa offers presentations on the following topics: 

  • the writing process, evolving from pantser to plotter, and finding what works for you as a writer.
  • The truth about the not-so-glamorous author life
  • Revisions
  • Other topics based on request.

High school, grades 9-12.

Enjoys talking to smaller groups. Can present to larger audience, too!

Tattered Cover will design an order form that the school should distribute in advance of the author visit, and again on the day of the event to all student attendees. 

Link to share with students and their families to order Lisa's books: TBD

Please make sure anyone ordering online includes the name of your school in the Notes section of the order and if they'd like to pick up the book from you at the school. Please DO NOT give a book to someone who says they ordered online unless they have the printed confirmation. PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email us the name of the student and parent's name and we can check. DEADLINE: Online orders with SCHOOL PICK UP will only be available for one week after the school visit. Orders placed after that time will need to be picked up at one of our locations, or shipped.
