Lisa Jahn-Clough is the author and illustrator of picture books and the author of young adult novels, a series of early-reader comic books, and young chapter books. Her first book Alicia Has a Bad Day was published in 1994 and is still in print! Her most recent publication is The Kids Of Cattywampus Street, a collection of surreal stories for early chapter book readers. It is an Amazon Editor’s pick and has been hailed as “so extraordinary it will make you lose your mind” by Lemony Snicket.

Lisa’s work has won awards from Child Magazine, Parent's Choice, Bank Street, Raising Readers, Entertainment Weekly, and YALSA.  She earned a BA from Hampshire College and an MFA from Emerson College and has been writing, illustrating, and teaching for the last twenty-five years. She is a tenured professor at Rowan University in southern New Jersey and every summer heads to an island in Maine where she runs a small art gallery and a low-key gift and card publishing company.
