LJ Cohen is the writing persona of Lisa Janice Cohen, poet,
novelist, blogger, local food enthusiast (yay Newton Community Farm!), Doctor Who fan, and relentless optimist. Lisa lives in Newtonville with her family, two dogs (only one of which actually ever listens to her) and the occasional international student. She thinks she has the best halloween house in the neighborhood.
When not doing battle with a stubborn Jack Russell Terrier mix, Lisa can usually be found somewhere in Newton with her laptop, writing.
Lisa grew up in New York, but has lived in Newton since 1992. (She was a Mets fan before she switched her allegiance to the Red Sox.) After a 20+ year career as a Physical Therapist, she returned to her first love--writing--and has been writing ever since.
Her debut novel, THE BETWEEN, a YA fantasy, was published in January of 2012. It is available in trade paperback (at Newtonville Books!) and all eBook formats. Purchase links at http://www.ljcohen.net/the-between.html
